Our LevelUp programmes:

Apprenticeship and graduate programmes

These are designed to attract great people who aspire to a career in housing.

Typically, they are two-year programmes which provide certifications/qualifications along with the opportunity to put that learning into practice on the job.

By the end of the programme, individuals should be both qualified and ready to LevelUp into a permanent position with us.

Take a look at Tommy’s experience in the video above and, if you are interested in applying for an apprenticeship or graduate position with us, keep an eye on our jobs page.

Aspiring managers and emerging leaders

A 12-18 month professional qualification designed for those with the drive to move into management or a leadership position.

This programme helps build key management and leadership knowledge and skills, and put individuals in a better position to LevelUp when opportunities arise.

Coaching and mentoring

Career pathways are not always straightforward, we provide both a coaching and a mentoring programme to help our people navigate that journey, explore options, set goals and overcome barriers.


Through these initiatives, we're able to support our people on their career path and in turn, secure the future analysts, surveyors, carpenters, managers and leaders of L&Q.
