A HOUSING association is searching for six young people from Hounslow to train for paid apprenticeships.
Hounslow Homes is hoping to take on a group of youngsters up to the age of eighteen to train as heating engineers, plumbers, carpenters and electricians.
The training lasts between three and four years, and will see college courses combined with on-the-job experience, carrying out work in the Hounslow borough.
When finished, the young apprentices will be an expert in their chosen trades, as well as having an NVQ Level 3 qualification.
Hounslow Homes chief executive, Bernadette O’Shea, said: "We have a long history of offering apprenticeships to young people, with some of our employees starting as apprentices still here more than thirty five years later.
"We are so proud to be able to provide this opportunity for young people in the local community. A trade is something that will provide them with skills they will always have and always be able to use".
Hounslow Homes would like to hear from anyone interested, whether they are male, female, a school leaver, or already embarking on an apprenticeship.
On successfully completion of the apprenticeships, the organisation may also be able to offer ongoing in-house employment.
The closing date is 17 December 2010, anyone wanting to find out more can click here.
