Our Foundations for Life team offer multiple (non-accredited) training courses for tenants and residents across our geography. These are free of charge to attend but some may have eligibility requirements.
This page provides additional information about the courses on offer.
In addition, we work some fantastic training providers across the region, and will use this space to share upcoming courses we think may benefit our customers; these links will be direct to those offering the course; but you are welcome to contact us to talk about the courses.
Are there barriers stopping you from attending?
If things like travel costs, childcare costs or access to a digital device and data are preventing you from attending these courses, please get in touch, we can help.
Join our Money Works course and get practical tips to make your money work for you.
Each week we'll give you guidance and advice to help you find ways to improve the way you manage money.
We'll help you understand your relationship with money, give you steps to building your own budget, look at how to manage debt, the best ways to save money and how to go forward and put all of this advice to practical use.
As part of the course, you'll get the following:
A £10 shopping voucher to put what you've learnt into practice
A food package when you attend all of the sessions
Support completing a free qualification in either Food Hygiene Level 2 or Paediatric First Aid
Learn to read, write and drive with our Foundations for Life team.
The Write Turn can help you build confidence with reading, writing, maths and digital skills. Plus, we're offering to cover the fee for a provisional driving license and driving theory test so you can put those skills to practical use.
We'll also run sessions on how to complete the driver's theory test and develop your digital skills so you can access and complete the test.
By the end of the course, you'll have the foundations to build on these skills, with options to take part in maths and English courses and the chance to get employment support.
On top of all of that, you'll be well on your way to learning how to drive.
