: This FREE half day training session updated for 2018 focuses on perhaps the most significant reform to Social Security since the inception of the Welfare State. It provides participants with an overview of which means tested benefits Universal Credit replaces, how entitlement is calculated, how it works for different groups of people interfacing with the benefit and when it will be implemented in the different geographical areas of Northern Ireland.
We recommend that you complete the ‘New Sanctions to Benefit Entitlement Awareness Session’ in conjunction with this course.
Who Should Attend:
The course is aimed at advisers and others working with groups who will be impacted by Welfare Reform
There are 3 CPD hours available for the session.
The sessions can be used as evidence towards a range of units in our Advice and Guidance NVQ’s and Legal Advice qualifications including ‘Understanding the Importance of Legislation and Procedures’ (Unit 30). It is also linked to the National Occupational Standards for Legal Advisers including ‘IB19 – First Line Welfare Rights and Legal Advice’.
