In England, social housing accounts for 17% of all households. One of the issues in the social housing sector is the lack of adequate and affordable housing. As a result, there has been a rise in the number of requests for it.

Social housing is provided at affordable rates and securely to those on low incomes or with special needs. The state, in the form of councils or non-profit organisations such as housing associations, typically holds associated properties.

The principle behind social housing is that where the private sector cannot provide affordable housing for all those in need, the state must step in to ensure that those on low incomes are taken care of. Its provision of social housing is viewed as a critical remedy to housing inequality because rent increases are controlled, ensuring that it remains accessible to those in greatest need.

Housing Officers are in charge of the day-to-day upkeep and management of rented properties owned by local governments or housing organisations. In this position, you will have daily contact with clients, assisting them in resolving any housing issues they may have.

Because people will come to you with problems that could have a major impact on their lives, this job is all about being sympathetic to their predicament while providing critical advice to assist them in finding a solution to their housing dilemma.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

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.
