Free training sessions

We support our customers to live independent lives and make their aspirations a reality by providing accredited and non-accredited training sessions. To help deliver this training, we invest our income from our professional academy into One Housing Foundation.

Drop in sessions

Do you need help to get a job or training? Come along to one of our Employment and Training drop in sessions.

Our personalised training programmes can help you obtain industry recognised qualifications. We can provide you with guidance on everything from writing winning CVs and attention-grabbing covering letters, to building confidence when you land an interview and filling in skills gaps for jobs where you might not fit the job description 100%. We can also support you while you are in employment.
