As part of the Pathways to Employment Programme, Pre-Tenancy Training is a hands-on, practical course to prepare Nightshelter and hostel residents from all over Bedford to live in their own homes.
It’s a refresher on the sort of things that always come in handy like knowing how to turn off the water when it’s dripping from the ceiling; how to communicate when you have ‘interesting’ neighbours and not running out of money before the weekly food shop!
The course is led by the Pathways to Employment team with additional support from trainers, other Project team members and volunteers. The course runs three or four times a year, with sessions including:
“The best parts were the laid back atmosphere and how to put up a curtain rail”— Pre Tenancy Training Client
“The role plays, the information on applying for housing”— Pre Tenancy Training Client
