- Course Information
This apprenticeship will see you starting a career within the housing sector and give you the chance to get involved in a number of different roles for various organisations such as housing associations, councils or related agencies. You will begin your apprenticeship as a Housing Assistant which involves dealing with customers and the administrative work needed to support the creation and sustainment of successful tenancies. This apprenticeship will help you learn how to operate effectively within a team and achieve a good standard of competency in your duties, whether that be general administrative duties, supporting consultations, supervised viewings or rental negotiations. You may later progress to an apprenticeship which will expand your knowledge and often require you working alone or with minimum supervision to resolve a range of more complex, often people related, issues. These could range anywhere from assisting people to live independently through to anti-social behaviour. This career therefore offers excellent opportunities for both study and career progression which could lead to professional or managerial roles.
