ARK supporting apprenticeships in Scotland

 

We were delighted to sponsor  Apprentices at the recent SFHA Conference held in Glasgow. The photo shows our Director based in the Scottish Boarders John Paterson and our lead People Director Helen Scurr together with the apprentices who attended the conference to promote the launch of the Apprentice Task Force.

The apprentices work in a range of areas of housing including housing management, finance, repairs (including some trades) admin and HR.  The SFHA and other agencies including The Scottish Government are promoting the idea of more housing organisations making available these opportunities for work based learning and also finding ways of promoting the idea of housing careers to young people.

Our support ties in with our work elsewhere in the UK helping organisations to reach NEET’s and other hard to reach groups and promoting youth employment and training.
