Giving back to the community
Access Training is a work-based learning provider based in the East Midlands that we jointly own with Futures Housing Group. They provide apprenticeships and other training programmes to learners of all ages.
They’ve supported over 450 apprentices in the UK housing sector over the last four years. Through what they do, we can measure the social value added to our local community through the training and support offered. This increase in skills, employability and confidence levels has huge benefits. It translates to millions of pounds in social return on the investment in apprenticeships and other training schemes.
Since we bought Access Training, around 6,500 learners across our region have completed training schemes. This includes schemes, such as apprenticeships and traineeships, resulting in over 10,000 qualifications. The result is a very tangible impact on life chances and the local economy.
