What Happened During August 2017

Apprentice Mentor Training

On Tuesday 8th August 2017 we delivered an Apprentice Mentor training course to our colleagues across The Community Housing Group that mentor Apprentices as part of our Apprenticeship Programme.

The course, which was developed by our internal Training Officer focused on:

  • Identifying skills of a good Mentor
  • Identifying different ways of instructing
  • Reviewing the Apprentice Paperwork

By the end of the course delegates were able to:

  • Understand the role and responsibilities of an Apprentice Mentor
  • Understand different learning styles

The course was very well received with all delegates rating the course either satisfied or very satisfied.


Community Events

On Tuesday 22nd August and Thursday 24th August Vestia supported colleagues across the Group with their annual summer community events.

Members of the Neighbourhood Team and Resident Involvement were there to support the events along with a number of tenant representatives and local Councillors

The two events, which were hosted at the Walshes and Springfield Park, gave residents an opportunity to speak to colleagues from the Group as well as seek employment support from our Job Coaches.

The events were a great success with lots of residents getting involved in the free activities!
