Who's it for and what's it about?

In the world of housing, many governing bodies face the same, or similar, experiences e.g. Committee papers can sometimes be quite daunting – even for the most experienced Committee Members; many Committees have good working relationships with their Staff, but this can sometimes lead to complacency; often Staff can be dismissive about questions from Committee Members. Often, it is sometimes left too late for governing bodies to realize that ‘we should have asked more questions!’

Course content

This course will look at the types of questions committee members should be asking in relation to the specific subject area of Housing Management. It will focus on regulation, legislation, good practice and the new Social Housing Charter. The Association’s own reports will be looked at as examples. Reports from other areas will also be used.

Learning outcomes
By the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • Be Confident In Their Knowledge
  • Identify the key areas that they should be questioning
  • List a series of key questions for the particular topic
  • Be more confident to ask questions
  • Become the Staff’s ‘critical friend’
    To take a risk based approach
  • To govern more confidently and effectively
