Job Fit

We build confidence and develop experience, and so we consider job fit to be important. Good job matching has a positive effect on personal esteem, self-confidence, learning, progress, commitment and long-term success.

LTH will help you recruit the residents that possess a natural disposition for the service designed whether for income management, contact centres, housing management, leasehold management or asb casework. We develop work programmes for all.

Job Ready

Every person is different and likely to join the scheme with different skills and experience so they will progress at different speeds and need different levels of support.

Some residents need intensive training but are just as likely to succeed when given the right kind of support and encouragement. we design support which develops capacity to sustain work, including language, numerical or communication skills.

Learn to Hope works with other agencies to also provide debt counselling and money advice, help with self-awareness, healthy eating, diet and exercise, and try to support the whole family as well as the individual.

This is a rolling programme and so, over time, you can nominate several residents. Partners benefit by selecting the best residents.

Our Role

Learn to Hope support residents, and their families, whilst they train, helping them to become work ready.  We then help them sustain employment by creating placements for our Partners work demands.

The number of residents who enter depends upon the level of commitment form Partners. The more work an organisation pledges the greater the opportunities and value for money. 

After a few months, partners can recruit from the pool of trained residents. If successful at interview, a new trainee comes onto the programme. 

We manage the process provding more value to the landlords reducing recruitment and advertising costs.


During our first partnership Learn to Hope created an income management team which manages casework, contacts residents and allocates workload for training placements.

Our methods create the capacity to both deliver the work and at the same time train residents.

Core training combines on site, home based and off site methods guided, facilitated and self help. Residents are then assigned to dedicated monitored short term training on real contracts.

With new technology our volunteers are ready for part time and paid trainees within 4-6 weeks. It normally takes between 4 to 6 months to train people for sustained full time employment.
