Recruits of the Academy, who work across the organisation’s care and housing scheme’s, have successfully completed the 2018 leadership course, gaining a qualification, confidence and the opportunity to develop their career.

Rapport Housing & Care launched its in house Academy programme, ACE, in 2013, giving staff who wanted to develop their skills and further their career the opportunity to undertake a course and gain leadership and management skills. The academy has already had many success stories, with several members taking on senior roles and some moving in to a leadership role.

The graduates gathered alongside training staff and the management of Rapport Housing & Care at head office on Tuesday 11th December, to receive their certificates and share feedback. The group expressed their gratitude at being given the opportunity and all agreed that their confidence had increased significantly since starting their course in March.

Katrina Levett, Director of Operations commented: “We created the academy because we recognised that we had a lot of extraordinary talented employees within our services but maybe they didn’t have the confidence to explore promotion or undertake leadership and management training. The Academy enables those that want to, to undertake learning and development in a supportive and compassionate environment.

“The academy has grown since 2013 and now we are delighted to be offering a wider variety of courses which are open to all staff, not just those working in care. We are looking forward to continuing to support our graduates and welcoming our 2019 intake in February.”
