Creating homes and places where people want to live

Your skills

For many this is a time to reflect and make promises to ourselves on the changes we want to make in our lives. This could be learning a new skill or getting that qualification we’ve always intended to achieve.

The Tenant Academy is a great way of getting started, helping you build up your confidence and new skills along the way.

Last year more than 1,500 of you took advantage of FREE access to Tenant Academy training.

Although we’re currently unable to offer classroom based training we’ll be introducing a number of online training options to help grow your skills and potential.
