SFHA Housing Apprentice Action Plan for Scotland

Plan aims to increase amount and range of housing apprenticeships

Posted In

The SFHA’s Housing Apprentice Action Plan for Scotland 2017–2020 aims to increase the amount and range of Modern Apprenticeships that are available. It aims to help build a motivated workforce and ensure the housing sector is viewed as an attractive employment destination for young people who are looking for a fulfilling career. 

The action plan aligns with the Scottish Government’s commitment to growing and widening Modern Apprenticeships across Scotland, with the aim to increase equality and diversity by addressing issues around gender, additional support and complex needs, and minority group participation – including BME young people.

A steering group, led by SFHA, and consisting of Skills Development Scotland, Chartered Institute of Housing Scotland, Association of Local Authority Chief Housing Officers, SHARE, EVH, Construction Industry Training Board and PATH Scotland helped to inform the plan. The SFHA also received support and input from representatives from housing associations and local authorities as well as a group of recent and current apprentices.

The SFHA is meeting Minister for Employment and Training Jamie Hepburn MSP to discuss the plan and will update members on this and any other developments in due course.

If you would like to help shape the roll-out of the plan, please contact SFHA Head of Business Development Diane Cooper by email: dcooper@sfha.co.uk
