Who is this course for?

This course is for front-line advisers, including those going into advice work for the first time and those already working in the field. You’ll gain an understanding of the whole sector and feel confident in giving better quality advice and making appropriate referrals. The single module option is particularly suited to advisers looking for an introduction to a particular area of social welfare law.

The course consists of five modules: advice skills, welfare benefits, debt and money advice, employment law, housing and homelessness. Each module maps against the knowledge requirements of the National Occupational Standards for Legal Advice; the relevant units are shown on the modules page.
