Housing Law Advice

Housing Law Advice training delivers the most up-to-date knowledge of key housing law. Through our accredited programme, we empower your people to make faster decisions, give clearer advice, and resolve more cases for people and families in need.

 

We've delivered Housing Law Advice (previously HomePoint) to housing practitioners since 2005, improving advice quality standards across the sector. Through our course, more than 6,000 professionals - including housing officers, welfare rights advisors and tenancy support workers - have the knowledge and confidence they need to support their clients.

 

Learners will meet the Scottish National Standards for Information and Advice Providers (SNSIAP) housing-specific advisor competencies - essential for anybody working in housing advice. What's more, they'll receive an SQA Professional Development Award in Housing Law Advice.

 

"We've supported a number of employees to take Shelter Scotland's Professional Development Award in housing law, information and advice. The online programme builds knowledge and understanding of housing-related issues, and means our staff can deliver effective information and advice. For employees in frontline housing services, this qualification provides recognition and reward for their professionalism. We'll continue to offer this award as a learning and development pathway."

Isabel Brownlie, Operational Learning and Development Lead, North Lanarkshire Council
