The new hous­ing ap­pren­tice­ships

The Oban Times - - Property -

HOUS­ING ap­pren­tice­ships are chang­ing.

The in­tro­duc­tion of new hous­ing ap­pren­tice­ship stan­dards rep­re­sents a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to bring through new tal­ent into the sec­tor – al­low­ing hous­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions to build a be­spoke pro­gramme of train­ing around a young per­son to give them the skills they need to ex­cel in a spe­cific role.

This great op­por­tu­nity to bring fresh en­ergy into hous­ing re­quires a sig­nif­i­cant level of buy-in and sup­port from hous­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions to de­liver the train­ing and assess­ment needed.

Whether you know about the changes or not, if you have a pay bill of more than £3 mil­lion, which the vast ma­jor­ity of hous­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions do, you will now be con­tribut­ing to an ap­pren­tice­ship levy which came into ef­fect on April 6.

If you don’t draw down the levy and use it to pay for new ap­pren­tice­ships, you lose it. And in or­der to make the most of it, you need to know how to nav­i­gate the new stan­dards. That’s where we, the Char­tered In­sti­tute for Hous­ing in Scot­land, come in. With a cen­tury of ex­pe­ri­ence equip­ping hous­ing pro­fes­sion­als with the skills they need to do the bril­liant work they do, we can help you make the most of the new hous­ing ap­pren­tice­ships – what­ever stage of the jour­ney you are at.
