Together with the NSW Government, Housing Plus and the Community Housing Industry Association (CHIA) NSW is providing new training opportunities connected to jobs in the Community Housing Industry through a Cadetship Program.

This Cadetship Project provides an opportunity for a social housing tenant to commence as a cadet by undertaking paid employment with Housing Plus for 12 months in our tenancy team and study a Certificate IV in Housing. This combination of training and work means you can earn as you learn!

With only 25 cadetships on offer, now is the time to submit your application to be a suitable candidate.



  • Develop application/allocation, tenancy and property management skills, working in an office environment, visiting people at their homes, or checking their properties.  
  • Learn about the Community Housing Industry and Housing Plus, who help people find a home and stable housing.  
  • Obtain a nationally accredited qualification by undertaking the CHC42221 Certificate IV in Housing.  
  • Earn an income while you learn.
