Real stories of Progress

Oliver's story

When 21-year-old Oliver saw an advert in the tenants’ newsletter for apprenticeship positions with the Group, he jumped at the chance. Oliver had always wanted to be a tradesperson so he applied for the apprentice position.

He got the role and is now getting the training and work experience he needs to qualify as a joiner. The apprenticeship programme is being managed by Progress Futures which helps customers achieve their aspirations and improve their future job prospects. Oliver says it’s a great opportunity and he enjoys going to work every day.
