Trafford Housing Trust has been presented with two prestigious awards this week at Trafford College Group’s Apprenticeship Awards ceremony celebrating the borough’s apprentices.

The Trust collected the Commitment to Training Award after 11 colleagues across the organisation completed the level two team leader apprenticeship programme.

In addition, Taylor – the manager of the Trust’s Lostock Court sheltered scheme in Stretford - won the award for Apprentice of the Year: Professional Studies.

Jane Keys, Director of Apprenticeships at Trafford College, said: “We are delighted to present Trafford Housing Trust with a Commitment to Training award at this year’s Apprenticeship Awards.

“The College has worked together with senior members of the CleanStart team and their cohort of aspiring Team Leaders over the last year, and their support both for the team and the college has been outstanding throughout.

“In particular, supervisors and managers at CleanStart have supported their learners and enabled them to gain valuable opportunities to develop by working closely with assessors, whilst listening to the needs of learners.  It’s fair to say, we now feel a part of the team.”

Speaking about Taylor, she added: “Taylor has embraced returning to learning as an older apprentice completely, and applies the skills and knowledge he has learned to his workload and the projects he carries out for Trafford Housing Trust.  If anyone has captured the spirit of completing an apprenticeship later in one’s career, then Taylor is that ambassador.”

Emily Price, Learning and Development Advisor at Trafford Housing Trust, said: “We are naturally delighted to win this award.  The Trust has a real commitment to providing colleagues with learning opportunities. Over the last two years, we have had 59 people – around a tenth of our workforce – undertaking education through an apprenticeship programme.

“This commitment is now being extended as we are advertising for an Apprenticeship and Talent Advisor to look after the recruitment and mentoring of apprentices, graduates, and staff on formal qualifications, as well as providing work experience opportunities.”
