Over 30 modules providing interactive learning are available to help staff understand and inform residents and the wider community at their own time.


Climate change and the housing sector

Climate change adaptation and resilience are vital for the housing sector. This course looks at:

  • the main impacts of climate change to the housing sector
  • how housing associations can tackle the adverse effects of climate change
  • the benefits of making your housing stock more efficient

Introduction to fuel poverty

With over 4 million households in the UK estimated to be affected by fuel poverty, it is vital that the understanding of what fuel poverty entails is fully embedded within organisations in housing, particularly for staff dealing directly with residents. This course provides:

  • an insight into the causes of fuel poverty and the impacts on residents,
  • guidance on identifying the signs that a household is in potential risk of fuel poverty

Reducing fuel poverty

Once the causes and impacts of fuel poverty are understood, organisations in housing must take action. This course supports those committed to tackle fuel poverty and those working directly with residents, by providing:

  • understanding the impact fuel poverty has on people
  • Identifying those at risk
  • guidance and actions to take if a home is in fuel poverty.

Office environmental impacts

Resilient businesses are businesses that are efficient and the impact of offices mustn’t be overlooked as it can have a significant impact in your organisation’s carbon footprint but also in its bottom line.  This course explains:

  • why we need to reduce the environmental impacts of your offices and the benefits
  • what actions you can take to reduce these and become a more efficient, sustainable and resilient business.

Understanding the energy efficiency of your homes

Landlords are always striving to improve the quality of what they do and in order to deliver warm quality homes it’s important to understand the energy efficiency of your stock. Regardless the size of your housing stock there is a plethora of benefits in investing in energy efficiency improvements. This course helps your staff to:

  • get on top of the energy efficiency of your housing stock,
  • understand the drivers and available funding for energy efficient homes
  • get to grips with the elements of SAP calculation.
