CIH welcomes Royal Assent for Housing and Regeneration Bill
The Chartered Institute of Housing has formed a corporate partnership with one of the UK's biggest housing providers.
The two-year deal will see CIH providing membership, qualifications, training and development and business advisory services for Home Group, which manages more than 55,000 homes across the UK
The social landlord is one of the first organisations to sign up to the CIH’s new corporate partnerships programme, which was launched in January.
Corporate partnerships aim to provide a tailored package of services while also delivering a range of additional benefits to customers. As well as the services chosen by Home Group, organisations can choose to take advantage of CIH business toolkits and products, conferences and events and exhibition and sponsorship.
Janet Talman, CIH director of commercial services, said: “We’re delighted that Home Group has become our newest corporate partner and we’re really looking forward to working with the team there over the next two years.
"It’s clear that Home Group is very committed to investing in the professionalism of its staff, and we’ve worked hard to come up with a programme that supports that commitment while providing value for money.”
Home Group chief executive Mark Henderson said: “Home Group is committed to developing its workforce so colleagues can provide the highest levels of excellence for our customers and clients. We have worked for some time now with CIH and recently we had 95 colleagues complete their CIH Level 3 in housing practice.
"A third of these have gone onto study for their diploma which they are due to complete between May and July. This new corporate partnership has grown from our experience of working with CIH and we look forward to seeing more of our colleagues continue to develop their skills.”
