Training & Employment Support
The Work & Skills Wise Service has a proven record of supporting willing Monmouthshire Housing Association tenants to learn new skills and improve on existing ones. This will ultimately increase their chances of finding work or getting a better job. By taking up the free service as MHA tenants, you will be provided with a dedicated Work & Skills Wise Advisor who will focus on supporting you to work towards achieving your goals.
The support we offer to anyone living in an MHA home is:
- A job seeking skills course / one to one support – this can help you find jobs in your local area, update your CV, refine your interview skills and build the confidence to secure your next job. You can also come away with a “Level 1 Award in Work Related Education” qualification.
- Voluntary work placements – this will help open opportunities either within MHA departments or within other organisation to help you gain valuable work experience to enhance and update your CV.
- Access to our financial bursary’s – this is a pot of money which you can apply for to help pay for training or reduce any barriers to employment.
- A laptop loan scheme – this can help you get online, search for jobs and undertake training in the comfort of your home.
