Our Housing Academy provides everyone in the housing sector with an opportunity to continue their professional development through online qualifications and training.
So, whether you’re looking to upskill, tackle future challenges, or develop your career, the CIH Housing Academy is here to help.
CIH qualifications are a fantastic way of establishing yourself as a professional in the housing sector and ensuring you have the theoretical knowledge, essential skills, and learning to perform at the highest level in your day job. Our qualifications make skills visible and bring a greater depth of understanding than experience alone can provide.
Why study a CIH qualification?
Studying online gives you total flexibility to study when and where works for you. As a CIH Housing Academy online learner, you will have access to a complete set of online learning tools, including study materials written by our team of specialist authors, links to useful websites and resources, and forums where you can share your thoughts and ideas with other learners.
Online plus combines all the benefits of online study with the addition of dedicated tutor support via virtual sessions. These virtual sessions offer the opportunity to interact and share knowledge with other learners and tutors but still benefit from fitting study time around work and life commitments.
With CIH bitesize learning, you can break down our qualifications and study the units you want to, when you want to, and pay as you go. You may choose to study a single unit on a topic of particular interest or, over time, study all units that achieve the whole qualification on successful completion. Bitesize learning is currently available on Levels 2, 3, and 4 Certificate in Housing Practice.
Blended learning is a method of study which combines face-to-face learning days with online learning. Hence, learners get the best of both worlds - the opportunity to interact, share knowledge and learn from other students and a tutor, and the ability to fit their learning around other commitments. This includes:
