Professional Development & Training


We provide a range of training courses targeted at the needs of:

  • Development & Regeneration staff
  • Managers
  • Directors, Board members, Councillors etc

We have split our training courses into two headings:


Training Needs Analysis

We developed the HATC Competency Matrix in conjunction with Notting Hill Housing Group and other leading housing associations. It consists of 35 key topics relevant to affordable housing development and regeneration. It also contains a detailed description of the levels of knowledge needed from entry-level posts to Head of Development grade. It forms a robust basis for identifying knowledge gaps, and from which individual or team-wide training needs programmes or Competency Development programmes can be developed.


Training / Competency Development Programmes

Based on the results of training needs analysis, and drawing on our knowledge of the range of training opportunities offered, we can prepare programmes to develop the competencies of individuals and/or teams. With the ever-increasing focus on ensuring value for money, we have noticed a significant increase in demand for these services in recent years.

A further refinement of these programmes has allowed us, with Southern Housing Group, to develop competency assessment methods that can be used as part of a Development and/or Asset Management department’s Reward & Retain activities. Read More »
