Training

Our free programme of introductory/refresher training is available to members, and covers a range of housing issues and topics. The courses are designed to respond to the latest developments in housing and homelessness, and we apply a blended learning approach that includes face-to-face training, bitesize (e-learning) and webinars.

Local Authorities

Aimed at front-line housing options advisers that deal with homeless applications and housing options enquiries, the local authority training programme provides a number of face to face training courses and webinars on housing/homelessness topics available in-house.
