Wiseradviser: Rates: Liability and Enforcement

Wednesday, 26 June 2019 - 9:30am to 4:00pm

Due to the recent developments with COVID-19 this course will now run via the online Zoom platform instead of face to face. It will be delivered on 17th August as an online live course from 10am-1pm. Access instructions will be sent to you after you sign up. This skilled level course provides a comprehensive overview of Rates in Northern Ireland. It will enable you to advise your client on their rights and responsibilities in relation to Rates including liability, exemption, calculations, bills, help with rates and the debt recovery process. This is a core course for those seeking MaPS accreditation at Advice Work or above.
Who Should Attend: 
Wiseradviser courses are appropriate to anyone currently working with vulnerable clients facing financial difficulties.
Fees: 
All Wiseradviser courses are FREE to organisations providing FREE and impartial money and debt advice.
CPD Hours: 
This course is worth 4.5 CPD Points under the IMA MaPS Scheme. It is also worth 6 NIAQS CPD points.
Education/Professional Framework: 
As explained above Wiseradviser training can enable participants to demonstrate that they meet the requirements of the Money Advice Service quality framework for individuals. This framework is mapped against a variety of NOS, so by achieving the relevant training advisers can demonstrate that they meet the NOS associated with that activity set (see pathway on page 21). The Advice Work activity set, for example, covers 9 NOS including ‘First Line Money and Debt Legal Advice/ Casework’ and ‘Provide and Receive Referrals on Behalf of Clients’. The courses link to a range of NOS beyond those covered by the MAS quality mark, including ‘Providing First Line Consumer Legal Advice/Casework’, ‘First line Housing Legal Advice/Casework’, ‘First Line Mental Health Legal Advice/Casework’. The Wiseradviser courses can be used as evidence towards a range of units in the Advice and Guidance and Legal Advice qualifications. This includes ‘Negotiate on Behalf of Clients (Unit 11), ‘Support Clients to Make Use of Advice and Guidance Services’ (Unit 2), and ‘Present Cases for Clients in Formal Proceedings’.
