Apprenticeships are part of the employment support programme from Torus Foundation.
In recent months the team worked with a number of Torus tenants and the wider community to gain apprenticeships within the Torus group, including roles at HMS, where Lynn was placed as a Joiner.
Lynn, was a welder by trade but took a break to look after her family. Although there was quite some time between using her skills, with support from Torus Foundation, Lynn was able to recognise what strengths and skills she had to offer when applying to be an apprentice. Her knowledge and experience shone through during the interview and practical process.
Since being placed with HMS, Lynn has been enjoying working alongside a knowledgeable team and is taking pleasure in seeing the difference being made first hand to tenants in their homes and other HMS customers.
Modern apprenticeships encourage people of all ages and provide quality training in a chosen trade or role that results in a recognised qualification.
As a Torus tenant, if you come across an apprenticeship vacancy and would like support in applying, contact the team. You can also speak to the team at Torus Foundation about the range of employment support available.
