We are open to clients of Horton Housing who are aged 18 or over and in need of support around their training needs.
Tutors deliver non-accredited courses such as Personal Development, Confidence Building, Assertiveness, Communication for Employment and Tenancy Ready Training.
Tenancy Ready Training
This course is for clients who are currently supported by Horton Housing and is delivered by either tutors in the training centre, or support workers within schemes. The training can help you move into and look after your own tenancy. The training is in several parts and once finished you will receive a Tenancy Ready certificate. You can discuss this further with your support worker or the Training Centre Manager.
