Participants on Lewisham Homes’ Improving Housing Services programme have been celebrating after it was announced that the course has been recognised by the Chartered Institute for Housing (CIH).
The course, organised by Lewisham Homes and London Metropolitan University (LMU), with sponsorship from Lewisham Tenants’ Fund (LTF), covers housing history, law and funding and enables participants to get involved in shaping Lewisham Homes’ services and effectively challenge and improve our work. Those completing the course gain an accredited qualification from the University which could support them to find employment in housing.
CIH is the independent voice for housing and the home of professional standards. The validation of the course by CIH lasts for two years and recognises the benefit of the course for both those undertaking it and the housing profession more widely.
Alys Exley-Smith, Community Relations Manager at Lewisham Homes, said: We’re excited to have been awarded the CIH accreditation for Lewisham Homes’ Improving Housing Services course. Our unique partnership with London Metropolitan University to deliver the course offers residents more than just the three days training but also additional support to make it really useful for participants. We’re delighted that this has been recognised by the Chartered Institute for Housing.’
