SFHA and Skills Development Scotland have joined in partnership to support employment opportunities in the housing sector. The partnership will allow members to access direct specialist support on employer opportunities for schemes such as modern apprenticeship and graduate schemes. It will highlight opportunities and employment options for individuals to access.

The partnership has also secured funding for the housing sector to utilise Skills Development Scotland's Skills for Growth service. Employers benefit from having their own dedicated adviser from SDS and a specialist consultant who helps make the best use of your management skills, assess the skills of your staff and work with training providers to fill the gaps.
