TRAINING FOR ACCENT EMPLOYEES AND RESIDENTS
We encourage Accent staff to train and develop their skills and knowledge. Our offer of training includes in-house and external courses and, depending on circumstances, the time and support individuals need to gain professional qualifications. We also operate an e-learning system for staff and residents as a cost effective method of training with easy access at a time and place that suits the learner.
We help our residents improve their skills and their chances of employment with web based and practical training. These include:
- Financial initiatives to help our residents manage their money. This helps to assure our rental income through debt management, and access to benefits and financial institutions.
- The 'Get Britain Working' policy,which contains a number of initiatives including jobs, training, (social) enterprise, volunteering and work experience, and work/enterprise clubs.
- Health and disability and supported housing services and initiatives which improve residents’ health and social wellbeing.
- Quality of life and community activities over and above our core housing management offer (including prevention of anti-social behaviour).
Many of our training courses, including Skills Support for the Unemployed are part financed by the European Union, European Social Fund.
