The Process

After receiving your request, either Alex or Jo from our training team will be in contact to arrange an initial scoping call. Here we’ll work with you to understand your needs in more detail. If you have a Training Analysis Form then please either send this beforehand or have this available on the day.

After the call we’ll contact the relevant training provider and explain your requirements to them. In turn they will design a bespoke session for you.

We will be in contact once we have the session outline and will catch up with you on the agenda so far. If you’re happy with the proposal, we will arrange a date, time and location for the session.

You can use your inclusive membership allowance towards the cost of the training or pay at a subsidised cost. This is all part of our commitment to invest in and develop colleagues working in housing.

In house training for mhs Homes

Last year we supported mhs Homes with two in-house courses – Practical Contract Management and HHSRS training. They had identified both skills as internal training requirements, and approached us for help in adapting our courses to suit their needs.

Practical Contract Management 

Our Director of Strategic Development, David Ashby designed and facilitated a bespoke session for new and current employees around asset management and more general contract management. We delivered the session on site in their offices to 11 colleagues. All attendees where given a comprehensive overview of practical contract management and were provided with key takeaway handouts for future reference to support with their ongoing learning.

HHSRS Training

Andrew Lavender, our HHSRS CPD training provider also supported mhs with a bespoke training session which upskilled 18 delegates. Colleagues working within their major repairs, planning, fire and safety and asset delivery teams attended. The course was a full day session looking at the background of HHSRS, how the rating system works, and how to use the operating guidance.

Testimonials from our delegates – 

  • “This was a really good session and thank you for adapting to the rooms level.”
  • “I thoroughly enjoyed and found it very helpful. Thank you also for your feedback to the questionnaire.”
  • “Thank you for making it an interesting and knowledge sharing day.”
