Social Housing Legislation Training – Launch Event


The GWLAD “Understanding Housing Law” programme, developed in conjunction with Coastal Housing Group, is designed to ensure housing professionals and organisations are equipped with up to date knowledge relating to the new Housing and Planning Act coming into force in 2018.

Delivered by expert tutors in a friendly and welcoming environment, our course brings together formal training with work-based experience, including case studies and examining real-life scenarios that housing professionals face.

Small tuition groups mean learners benefit from a high level of interaction with peers and tutors alike, and content informed by national policy and practice ensures they leave with a greater understanding of the impact of the new legislation and their role in ensuring compliance.

“The reason why I decided to undertake the qualification is for a number of reasons the main one being to enhance my knowledge in housing to help in my day to day role and to develop myself further having only had qualifications in respect of my previous legal role.

I also feel that the extended knowledge in housing I’ll gain from the course will be beneficial to the team as a whole and anyone else who I support within the organisation”. – Tracey John, Housing Officer, Coastal Housing Group
