Support for Employment and Training

As part of our commitment to financial inclusion, we are currently looking to encourage and support VHA resident and their households to enhance their employability.  

In addition to these formal arrangement, we will also do what we can, in conjunction with our contractors and partners to offer a range of flexible training and employment-related opportunities. Although we cannot guarantee to arrange something suitable, we will try our best.  If you wish to be considered, please download and complete our employment opportunity form and return it to us at Chapel House, Chapel Street, Newport, PO30 1PZ.


We are working closely with the Isle of Wight College and created two full-time apprentice positions for young Islanders.  This has developed directly from the pre-traineeship programme operated by the College with funding from the Isle of Wight Council.  We offered three-month work experience opportunities to four young people who split their time between VHA and attending the College to improve their qualifications.

Robyn and Lucy, are both undertaking apprenticeships and we expect they will contribute significantly to the way we operate.
