Do you struggle to collect your CPD points? Help is at hand in the form of e-learning!

It is easy to feel under pressure at work…in-tray bursting at the seams, deadlines looming, sales targets to meet. Oh, and dare I mention that CPD accredited training course you have been booked on to?!

CPD accredited training for individuals

We shouldn’t underestimate the importance of Continuing Professional Development, but sometimes it is easy to forget about it alongside our everyday working lives.

Last year, the Housing e-Academy joined forces with the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) to offer a ‘Professional Individual Membership’ (PIM) package, giving you an alternative way to gain your CPD points…through online training or e-learning.

E-learning enables you to learn at a time, place and pace that suits you, meaning it has never been easier to collect your CPD points and learn more about developments within the housing sector!

The PIM is changing….

Housing e-Academy and CIH have recently reviewed the selection of courses included in our PIM package. Individuals may now select three courses from the following list:

  • An Introduction to Governance for Social Housing Providers
  • An Introduction to Social Housing
  • An Introduction to Social Media for Business
  • Conflict Resolution in the Workplace
  • Dealing with Anti Social Behaviour
  • Equality & Diversity in the Workplace
  • Health & Safety in the Workplace
  • Managing Stress & Pressure
  • Personal Safety for Lone Workers
  • Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults (POVA)
  • Understanding Gypsy and Irish Traveller Identity in Society

The following courses are currently in development and will be included in the PIM package once released:

  • The Basics of Tenancy Management
  • Personalising and Assessing Care and Support Plans
  • Principles of Effective Income Management

Each course takes approximately 2 hours to complete which counts towards your CPD points.

So, what do you think of the new selection of courses included in our PIM? Leave us a comment below to let us know!
