West Kent Housing Association has brought in MidKent College to help it train more than 20 new apprentices.

As one of the leading providers of affordable homes across the county, West Kent has asked the college to deliver an apprenticeship programme covering skills including customer service, cleaning, caretaking, community safety and business administration.

Young people aged 16 or over who are interested in applying for one of the positions on offer are being invited to attend an awareness day at West Kent’s offices in London Road, Sevenoaks on Thursday, 7 August.

“We are delighted to have been selected by West Kent Housing Association to help train the young people who will hopefully go on to achieve great things with the organisation,” said Becky Farley, recruitment co-ordinator at the college’s JobShop.

“MidKent College has a proud record of delivering first-rate training to apprentices throughout the county and we look forward to continuing that trend with West Kent by our side.”

Clare Firth, learning and development partner at West Kent, said: “Providing opportunities to communities in which we have homes has always been a priority for us.” She added that apprenticeships offered “a great chance for anyone leaving school in September this year or for others who are struggling to find their career path to get experience and build their skills.”
