“I really enjoyed the coursework and feel it has been of benefit to me in my role as Housing Officer by giving me more of a detailed insight into the link between tenant participation and community development.  It is important that individuals recognise the importance of their role as tenants within their communities and us, as landlords utilise their knowledge and experience in order to make their homes a better place to live”.
