Following a really successful pilot in May, we are really pleased to welcome back The Stone Foundation for their interactive Pre-Tenancy Training.
The next course is at 4YP on 16, 17 & 18 July. You are welcome to register directly by completing and returning this form.
Pre-Tenancy Training enables new tenants or those who are soon to be living independently in a tenancy, the skills needed to sustain and maintain a tenancy.
The training delivered is from the Money House, Greenwich – a project that was launched by the Hyde Group in 2012. In this time they have gone on to train over 600 participants in managing their own home and budgeting – empowering young people with essential life skills and a base from which to grow.
Pre-Tenancy Training is proven to reduce the risk of homelessness and ensures vulnerable or young people get the support and knowledge to run a home of their own.
The training is fun and interactive, delivered through a range of resources creating a supportive environment, not classroom based. Interactive quizzes and games as well as facilitated discussion build confidence and understanding on the subject.
The training covers core modules as well as flexible modules depending on the group participants and what is most useful for them. There are guest speakers providing expert support and guidance, as well as mixing up the delivery – these are from local organisations and businesses.
Cooking meals on a budget is also woven into the course and experiential learning takes place by the group taking the lead in cooking healthy lunches for themselves.
Following completion of the course an attendance certificate is given in the final afternoon presentation; all participants are recognised for their achievements and feedback from participants has so far been extremely positive. This again highlights the need for this unique type of training.
This course is currently offered for free.
The Stone Foundation is still taking referrals for this course and others, if you would like to refer anyone or enquire further please email firstname.lastname@example.org. As well as learning key skills such as tenancy management, tenancy rights, benefits, budgeting etc. free lunch is provided daily and refreshments are on offer throughout the day.
