    At the end of the programme, trainees can compete for jobs in the Scottish Housing sector.

    Applicants should:

    • Be from Black and Minority Ethnic Communities and committed to a housing career
    • Be willing to undertake a demanding training and study programme over thirty-six months – 4 days’ work experience (between Monday and Friday) inclusive of 1 day’s attendance at college or university during the academic year.
