Wiseradviser: Dealing with Rent Arrears (NEW)

Wednesday, 27 March 2019 - 9:30am to 4:00pm

Participants are expected to have completed the Generalist Level Money Advice training course Introduction to Providing Debt Advice or its equivalent before taking part in this training and had an opportunity to put that training into practice. The training will take place over 1 day. This skilled level course will focus on the specifics of rental arrears in Private and Social Tenancies and suggest specific strategies to negotiate with arrears in each housing tenure. It will also focus on social landlord pre court protocols and what powers they have to make direct deductions from benefit.
Who Should Attend: 
Wiseradviser courses are appropriate to anyone currently working with vulnerable clients facing financial difficulties.
All Wiseradviser courses are FREE to organisations providing FREE and impartial money and debt advice. To find out if you qualify for FREE training contact: wiseradviser@adviceni.net. However, for accredited courses a £55 charge is applied for those seeking OCNNI accreditation (Note: this is £80 for the Insolvency course, which has 4 modules). Accreditation is currently optional for accredited courses but relevant assessments must be completed for MAS accreditation.
There are three levels to Wiseradviser training – Generalist Level (G) (provides basic principles of money advice), Skilled Level (S) (develops skills and knowledge of generalist money advisers), and Specialist Level (SP) (helps advisers deal with more complex cases). Most Wiseradviser courses are accredited with OCNNI at Level 3 or 4 and prepared for the Skillsmark endorsement. Accreditation is optional however, workbooks must be completed for the MAS accredited courses. See individual courses for further details. Learners must meet pre-entry requirements for skilled and specialist Wiseradviser courses. These can be found at www.wiseradviser.org
