What people say

'At the start of the course I was very confused as I was complete unsure what Scrutiny was, nothing the trainer was saying made any sense, HOWEVER after talking with him and making him aware of this he slowed the training down and met all my needs. I now have a full understanding of the course and I am very happy with the outcome, I feel ready to go back to my manager and explain everything I Learnt'  Marvellous Scrutiny Models Digital Training

'A well-presented session providing me with lots of background about the development and evolution of Regulation. How current Policy and Regulation will affect the Social Housing Sector' Housing Policy & Regulation Digital Training

'Running the ourse over 2 days with 2 hour sessions was better for me, as Sam discussed her charts and bullet points involving group chat and I found this to be better for learning and understanding, rather than skimming through them and having to read after course has finished, got a lot from the course in many waysl' Chairing Skills Digital Training

'Jane was fantastic and did a great job, especially with it being online and a mix of staff and tenants and all with varying experiences and knowledge etcRunning a Successful Residents Association Digital Training
