Homes for Lambeth – employability best practice

To support National Careers week, the CIH London board are working in partnership with Homes for Lambeth to showcase their recent employability programme.

Given the significant impact that the pandemic has had on employment across the UK and within our communities, there has never been a better time to shine a light on successful employability schemes.

Why attend?

Employability programmes have significantly grown in importance in the UK and there has never been a more important time to provide opportunity for our communities to thrive during these extremely challenging times.

Join housing colleagues to network and hear from HFL about their experience and approach, lessons learned and you will also hear directly from some of the interns and apprentices about why they chose this path and learn more about their introduction to developing a career in housing.

What you will learn?

  • A toolkit for designing and developing internship programmes and apprenticeship schemes
  • The business benefits
  • The people, social and wider community benefits
  • Real life stories to showcase the impact on people and their introduction to a career in housing
  • Guidance around The Apprenticeship Levy and partnership working
