St Mungo's Broadway Apprenticeship Scheme
In 2008 St Mungo's Broadway developed a client trainee scheme to give people who had lived experience of homelessness the skills and experience they need to find a job within the homelessness sector or further afield. Since then, the scheme has gone from strength to strength and is now called the Apprenticeship Scheme (in recognition of the qualification that is attached to it).
This is the only scheme in the homelessness sector that is only open to those with lived experience of homelessness.
Recruitment for the main 2014 intake of Apprentice Project Workers in London will start on 18 July 2014 and close on 1 August 2014.
Aims of the Scheme:
- To provide employment opportunities for those with lived experience of homelessness
- To provide a supported and structured route to gain the necessary skills and knowledge to become effective Project Workers
- The Scheme has provided employment for 85 people with lived experience of homelessness
- 98% of Apprentices completed the programme
- 64% of those who completed the programme were still in employment with St Mungo's Broadway in 2013
- There were 20 new starters in 2013 (including 11 new posts)
