MidKent College’s recruitment director Becky Farley said: “We are delighted to have been selected by West Kent Housing Association to help train the young people who will hopefully go on to achieve great things with the organisation.

“MidKent College has a proud record of delivering first-rate training to apprentices throughout the county and we look forward to continuing that trend with West Kent by our side.”

Today, young people interested in applying for a role at West Kent Housing can attend an awareness day at its office in London Road, Sevenoaks.

West Kent Housing learning and development partner Clare Firth added: “Providing opportunities to communities in which we have homes has always been a priority for us.

“It’s a great chance for anyone leaving school in September this year or for others who are struggling to find their career path to get experience and build their skills.”

The KM Group aims to get 100 companies to hire apprentices within the year as part of its Kick Start Kent campaign.
