Overview

A key function of social housing is to provide housing that is lower in rent for those who are most in need or struggling with their housing costs.

Unlike the private rented sector where tenancies are offered by the landlord to whoever they choose, social housing is distributed according to an allocation scheme.

Online assessment included.

Module 1. Social housing the basics

Module 2. Board, staff and tenants

This introduction to social housing course focusses on:

  • The knowledge and skills needed to deliver outstanding services
  • The importance of the board in governance and the skills members need
  • The key structures found in a well-organised provider

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
