Housing Law Advice

Housing Law Advice training supports those who provide advice and support to people with housing issues, either as a dedicated role or as part of a wider role.

This training ensures people not only have the knowledge to support people in housing need but also have the knowledge required to meet the housing specific competences of the Scottish National Standards for Information and Advice Providers.

With the Scottish Legal Aid Board leading on the implementation of a new accreditation model for the Scottish National Standards, we have refreshed our training offer to ensure that it continues to meet the needs of professionals who provide housing information and advice across a range of sectors.

Those advice providers whose staff complete this training are fully prepared for the audit process and will be able to evidence the full range of housing competencies which relates to the advice their service provides.

The training supports learners to evidence their ability to provide information and advice at each of the three levels of the housing competence standards. Learners who successfully complete this course receive an SQA Professional Development Award in Housing Law Advice.

The next intake for our ever popular Housing Law Advice course will commence in April 2019
