This exciting new national qualification was piloted last year, receiving high praise from both new and experienced advisers, wishing to refresh their advice knowledge and competence. The 10-day course covers all the skills, knowledge, processes and practice of providing multi-channel advice. It is taught via a face-to-face, on-line, placement, and distance learning approach allowing opportunities for application, including completion of forms for social security and tax credits.

The course incorporates all advice skills required for individuals to meet the Northern Ireland Advice Quality Standard and introduces learners to the core advice topics for generalist advisers. It focuses in depth on Social Security benefits and supports, and is fully up to date with Welfare Reforms in addition to legacy benefits. The course provides an entry route for those new to the advice sector to attain an industry standard accredited qualification as well as an opportunity for existing advisers to re-fresh their knowledge and skills.

This course is recommended for anyone working or volunteering in an advice setting whether they are new or experienced and wanting to develop, refresh and/or accredit their knowledge and skills. Learners must be working or volunteering in an advice setting in order to fulfil the placement aspect of the course.
