Muir's apprenticeships offer people the chance to gain accredited qualifications in the housing sector while gaining workplace experience that can help apprentices secure roles within the industry.
They are also available to existing staff wanting to enhance their skills and qualifications.
In 2021, Muir scooped the nationwide SYSCO Training Academy ‘Housing Apprenticeship Employer of the Year’ Award.
The Association received the coveted award as it was recognised by SYSCO for its “hard work and commitment to developing a skilled and motivated workforce through apprenticeships.”
See what some of our apprentices say about undertaking their apprenticeships at Muir...
“I chose to do apprenticeship alongside my role so I could learn a bit more about management, so there might be room for me to progress through to a management role in the future.
“The apprenticeship basically focused on all aspects of management including budget setting, conflict resolution and project management.
“I was able to undertake my own project, focusing on the revamp of our factsheets for residents, and I’ve been leading on several other projects within my team since then as well.”
Ella Tsimbalakis - Apprentice 2021-22
