  • We have worked closely with Sysco to help signpost our tenants onto employability courses to help them to move closer into employment. And we have had several success stories as a result. The training helped to build confidence and remove barriers for tenants when gaining employment.
  • I thought the course was worthwhile, as it not only taught me invaluable skills for a future management role but also gave me more confidence in my everyday tasks. Being selected made me feel like Hewden care about their employees advancing their careers. It was interesting also to spend more time with colleagues from other departments and to get an insight into different areas of the business
