Consultant to the National Housing Academy

The Housing sector faces a number of significant challenges as a result of the rapidly expanding housing market, Brexit and significant skills shortages. These challenges will require a wide co-ordinated response from all organisations and institutes within the housing sector. Whilst there are a number of accredited bodies in institutional roles who pledge to uphold appropriate sector standards, there is no single organisation to represent the entire spectrum of varied skills occupations within the housing sector, and specifically, those for Social Housing. As such, the National Housing Academy aims to address this gap.


National Housing Academy is a non-for-profit organisation who partner with Housing Organisations to improve safety, accountability and productivity within the social housing sector. They do this by placing competency, skills and tenant engagement at the heart of their work.
