National Apprenticeship Week 2018 #worksforus

Working with local contractors, Cumbria Housing Partners creates jobs and apprenticeships for people who live in the communities we work in across Cumbria. In National Apprentice Week 2018 we want to celebrate the apprentices we are proud to support and the businesses they work with.

We know how important it is to invest in the future workforce, for business and for individuals.  During 2017/18 we have supported 22 apprenticeships with local employers. This support includes training bursaries, toolkits and help with driving lessons as well as regular visits to make sure that the apprentices are on track to achieve.
