A holistic approach to allocations

Who is it for and what’s it about?

This course is for housing practitioners with responsibility for allocations. The course will examine existing good practice in relation to maintaining housing lists, offers and refusals and tenancy sustainment.

In addition, the new measures contained within the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014 regarding the changes to reasonable preference, consultation and home ownership will be considered, together with an exploration of the new tenancy types and qualifying periods.

The course provides a holistic approach to allocations ranging from strategic to day-to-day functions.
