To help new tenants settle into their homes and support their pre-tenancy requirements, online learning provider Virtual College has created a range of online resources.
Fiona Sheen, online learning advisor, Virtual College, said, “We were aware of the issues surrounding tenancy agreement failures widely expressed by the social housing sector. There is a need to help tenants become self-sustaining by developing their financial awareness and general ability to manage their tenancy successfully.
“Our investment in helping our social housing customers to provide a proactive approach to these issues recognises their current budget constraints and the limited financial resources at their disposal.”
The six short online pre-tenancy courses provide learners with the knowledge they need for a tenancy agreement, explore the basics of finding and viewing a property and the practicalities involved in occupying a new home, including paying rent, opening a bank account and getting advice on the services and support available.
