Welwyn Hatfield Community Housing Trust Apprenticeship

Monday, July 4th, 2011

Last week, Opps held an Apprenticeship event in conjunction with Welwyn Hatfield Community Housing Trust, providing information and guidance to candidates for the apprenticeship vacancies offered by the Trust.

We engaged with the candidates through presentations, discussions and a terrific talk and Q&A session from one of Opps’ apprentices Jon, who provided some insight in to the training from a learner’s perspective.

Thank you to Welwyn Hatfield Community Housing Trust for hosting the event and for their enthusiasm in exploring the apprenticeship scheme and taking on apprentices. Thank you also to the candidates and good luck in your applications; we look forward to meeting you again in your new roles.

Housing Event Success

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

We are pleased to report that last month’s housing event was a great success with informative and stimulating presentations from all the speakers.  The feedback received was fantastic with attendees agreeing to form a forum that will meet twice a year with the aim of looking at how the new apprenticeship frameworks can be best utilized and the ways in which resources and best practise can be shared.

The speakers provided a clear account of apprenticeships, warts and all, the framework surrounding them and the possible progression routes. Attendees were invited to share their experiences and it was great to hear that those organisations who had already taken apprentices on had found the experience to be a very positive one.

Opps would like to thank (in order of appearance) Asset Skills, the Chartered Institute of Housing, Middlesex University and Barbara Seymour and Mel Scott of Opps for their help in making the event possible.

Watch this space for further events.
