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.

What does the course cover?

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. The course provides you with the underpinning knowledge requirements for the Advice & Guidance vocational qualification and the Legal Advice vocational qualification at Level 3.  AdviceUK CPD hours – 5 per day (50 in total if you attend the full 10 week course)
