Learning at Work Week: Michael
19/05/2017
This week we’re celebrating Learning at Work Week (15-19 May).
We provide several programmes for residents, employees and the wider community, offering opportunities to learn and develop new skills.
Launched in 2012, our Academy programme offers training and work experience to unemployed people and school leavers struggling to find work.
Property services administrator Michael took part in the Academy in 2016.
Michael had severely damaging his spine, so he was unable to stay in his previous area of work.
“I was off work for a couple of years. I was then put in touch with a company called Remploy to get me back into work. They put me in touch with Newport City Homes through the Academy to retrain, and I got accepted,” explained Michael.
While on the Academy, Michael worked in the property maintenance department.
“It was a completely new learning curve for myself coming from a maintenance background and not a computer background. It’s helped me a great deal,” said Michael.
Michael gained computer skills and experience of an office environment.                   
“I enjoyed being with the team and gaining hands-on experience. I would 100% recommend the Academy,” added Michael.
