Training for the housing sector

Our online training is used by housing associations across the country to help staff meet compliance needs and get up to speed with legal and regulatory requirements.

The housing sector is currently undergoing a period of reform where levels of quality provision must be maintained despite major changes. This change is taking place at a time where significant budget constraints are also at play and efficiency savings are high on the agenda.

At this time of change it is important that the most effective learning programmes are in place to support the transformation and aid cost savings.Online training means a clear, consistent message is delivered across all staff and ensures learning and developing programmes provide a sense of stability during change. Virtual College has worked with a number of housing associations to develop online training packages that are designed to be cost-effective and flexible in order to adapt to the agile nature of housing and reduced budgets during this turbulent period.
