Together Housing success at West Yorkshire Apprenticeship Awards

Together Housing has been named Large Business Apprentice Employer of the year at the West Yorkshire Apprenticeships Awards 2024.

As one of the largest housing associations in the North of England, the housing association faced tough competition in the category but came out on top, reflecting the dedication of the organisation to nurture talent and provide valuable career opportunities through apprenticeships.

Over 16 dynamic pathways are provided through Together Housing’s apprenticeship programme, opening doors to varying qualification levels meaning each individual can embark on the programme that is best suited for their development.

In the last 12 months, the organisation has enabled 49 apprentices to onboard on to the diverse programme, allowing the Group to work towards its ambitious target of employing 25% of staff through apprenticeships.

Additionally, Together Housing prides itself on making the organisation as welcoming as possible for apprentices of all ages and backgrounds. Each apprentice is treated with fairness and respect, in line and with FREDIE (fairness, respect, equality, diversity, inclusion and engagement) principles.

Together Housing was shortlisted alongside other well-established organisations, recognised for their apprenticeship offer and the success they have achieved through this important and valuable career pathway.

Nigel Jones, Group Director of People Team at Together Housing said: “We’re thrilled to receive the Large Business Apprentice Employer award that recognises and celebrates our dedicated apprenticeship programme and of course, talented apprentices themselves. Colleagues can gain a wealth of experience from apprenticeships but so do we as an organisation which is why we never underestimate the value every single apprentice brings to the Group.

“We’re passionate about encouraging colleagues to take pride their work and to actively focus on giving everyone the chance to maximise their contribution to the business and bring out their unique skills and voice to make changes to build better communities.”
