Good, sound knowledge of housing law is the bedrock upon which all other fields of frontline advice skills are built. A housing worker cannot properly advise without it, a homelessness worker can’t ascertain whether an applicant is homeless without it and a housing officer cannot adequately negotiate or take possession action with knowing the rules and principles that underpin their working day.
This course provides that bedrock of skills.
