Steps To Success (S2S), the tenant employment programme run by Six Town Housing, has been shortlisted in a category at the forthcoming UK Housing Awards.

S2S is in the running for the Resident Employment and Training Award (for housing organisations managing less than 12,000 properties).

The S2S programme offers work opportunities, training and access to placements and apprenticeships to Six Town Housing tenants. Over 6,400 people have engaged with S2S since the programme was launched in 2014.

Applicants can also access a programme of support run by a life coach, which provides a bespoke development plan to help address what applicants believe might be affecting their employability.

So far, S2S has helped 242 people access employment, 136 access work placements, 41 access apprenticeships and 1,713 access learning opportunities, including higher education.
