Tradespersons who have taken electrician training courses could find themselves with increased employment opportunities after it was revealed by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) that a further 45 housing projects are to be funded by the government's Kickstart scheme.

It was announced recently that the first round of funding allocation for the initiative had finished, with an additional £153 million being added to the total invested in the delivery of affordable homes in Britain by the programme so far.

Sir Bob Kerslake, chief executive of the HCA, stated his delight at the prospect of an extra 3,688 houses being built in the near future.

He said: "This is a very good result, getting more than 10,000 homes underway in such a short space of time has been a great achievement. Many developers are already back to work and momentum is increasing every day."

The HCA is England's national regeneration and housing delivery body and aims to create affordable homes and communities.
