Training & Work Experience

In order to continually invest in and diversify our staff team, we offer a number of volunteering opportunities, work placements and employment opportunities, not only within the Govan Housing Association Group, but with some of the contractors we employ on our large-scale planned maintenance programmes.

Our Community Inclusion Team deliver a comprehensive range of activities from our Community Hub on Govan Road. The programme of activities is constantly growing, and with this comes a number of volunteer opportunities. This provides participants the chance to learn and develop new skills or refresh skills whilst gaining confidence and self-esteem through helping others. This is also a vital opportunity to gain skills that could assist a transition into employment.

We work in partnership with a number of schools, colleges, universities and training providers to offer work placements to pupils and students.

We also ask the contractors we employ to provide work placement opportunities to young people, to help them gain experience in the construction industry. We advertise any work placement opportunities on our ‘Current opportunities’ page and also accept approaches from partnership agencies where they have candidates looking for opportunities.

We aim to offer a number of Modern Apprenticeships in business administration and housing. With the growth of our Govan Home Team subsidiary, we will be looking to offer a range of Apprenticeships, so watch this space. Again, these will be advertised within our ‘Current Opportunities’ page along with full details of what the posts entail.

The apprenticeships give young people the opportunity to begin their careers within Govan and the chance to progress within the organisation. Some of our contractors also offer apprenticeships as part of community benefits in procurement – we will advertise these opportunities on our ‘Current opportunities’ page.

We also work with a range of partner organisations to deliver training programmes and focused work placements for target groups.

One of our most recent projects was our Operation Modulus and Mini-Modulus project. Here we worked with a number of local partner agencies to deliver a holistic employability programme targeted at local young people who are currently disengaged, involved in the criminal justice system and who are marginalised from society due to varying factors.

The programme focuses on taking young people from these two main age groups and providing them with the skills and aspirations to better their life prospects, and to try and lead them on to a positive pathway in life, away from the criminal justice system they were all too familiar with.

This is the second time that the Association has completed a programme like this, following a previous successful pilot in 2015-16. This project has now seen some 12 young people employed through our Govan Home Team. The young people have now built their own resilience, confidence and skills to retain employment. Now they take pride in keeping the community, which they once disrespected, clean, tidy and vibrant through estate management and landscaping services.

The project takes a holistic approach with various partners involved in what we believe is a truly community led, employability-focused programme of activity. The project encourages young people to engage with the job market and take pride in their community, whilst providing them access to a range of professional support agencies to help build social skills, manage family pressures and make the programme engaging and interesting for participants.
