Endorsed Course in Tenant Participation & Community Development

 

We are excited and delighted to announce that our pilot for the  is launching today.

Developed in partnership with Supporting Communities Northern Ireland, TPAS Scotland launched a brand new online Tenant Participation and Community Development Course.  

The course is aimed at tenants, housing professional staff or anyone wanting to gain knowledge and understanding of tenant participation and community development in Scotland.

It can also be used as a stepping stone to assist landlords towards achieving the TPAS Scotland Accreditation.

We have commitment from 5 organisations willing to pilot the online course – NG homes, Hjaltland HA, Fife Council, Aberdeenshire Council and South Ayrshire Council.

“Fife Council is delighted to be taking part in the Tenant Participation and Community Development online course.  An in-depth look at the strengths and weaknesses of the tenant participation services we deliver to our tenants as a Housing Service will be essential to ensure we meet the needs of our tenants.”

Tenant Participation Officer at Fife Council, Rab Clark said,

“Personally, when I do any job, I always do it to the best of my abilities. I want to look at my own strengths and weaknesses as a Tenant Participation Officer, to see what I can do on a personal level, to ensure that I am providing the best service I can, to my TRAs and the communities I serve. I believe that by attending the Tenant Participation and Community Development online course, I will learn new skills, hone my existing skills and circumvent any gaps in my knowledge.”
