KHT are pleased to announce we have been shortlisted for the Apprentice of the Year category at the 2019 Housing Heroes Awards to be held at Manchester Central on the 24th June. This award recognises the contribution of apprentices across the housing sector and is open to any applicant undertaking an Apprenticeship scheme or a traineeship, in any discipline and working within the housing sector.
Bethany Edge started working for First Ark Group as a Learning and Development apprentice in September 2018. During this time she gained considerable experience working in a housing environment whilst also developing her knowledge around learning and development. This has led to her taking on the role of Apprentice Ambassador within the Liverpool City Region, acting as an ambassador for First Ark, attending events across the borough with some outstanding feedback from partners and senior figures across Knowsley.
Since Bethany’s shortlisting, she has successfully secured herself a new permanent role in our Independent Living team. Bethany Edge, Independent Living Advisor said:
“It is a great business to be a part of and they offer so many opportunities for apprentices. I am delighted to be shortlisted for this award I can’t thank First Ark enough for all of the support I have received.”
Winners will be announced at the Housing Heroes Awards. The awards are jointly organised by Inside Housing and the Chartered Institute of Housing.
