HOUSING provider Three Valleys is helping to train up eight of its tenants, who could one day start careers as housing officers.
The residents are being mentored by Three Valleys staff as they study for their Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) qualifications, which gives them a detailed insight into housing.
Resident Xantia Schaefer said: “It’s fantastic, giving a lot of people the opportunity to get a qualification, whether it’s for work or improving your CV.
“There is a lot more to housing than you would think, there is so much you need to know.”
Part of the aim of the programme, according to Three Valleys, is so that residents can hold the organisation to account for the quality of services it provides.
