Fife housing association employees celebrate lockdown learning success
Staff from Kingdom Housing Association have been celebrating the successful completion of a housing practice qualification delivered by SHARE, the learning and development organisation for Scotland’s Housing Associations and co-operatives.
The course provides students with a deeper knowledge and understanding of key areas in delivering housing services and was started pre-lockdown in 2020. The training was originally designed to be delivered in-person but has been completed through on-line workshops thanks to the enthusiasm of staff and the support from SHARE and course tutor Jane Heppenstall.
Staff, who achieved their CIH Level 3 certificate, undertaking the training came from across the organisation with colleagues from housing, development and finance taking part.
Matthew Busher, Kingdom’s interim director of housing, said: "Kingdom is committed to supporting the continuous professional development of our team. The pandemic could have really thrown this course off track but we had excellent support from SHARE. Congratulations to all 11 colleagues who achieved the qualification."
