The course will be broken down into 12 weekly sessions lasting 3.5 hours each.
Each week, sessions will run on Tuesday afternoons or Thursday morning so you can choose which works best for you. Please indicate in the comment box on the enquiry form if you have a preference.
For the spring 2021 cohort we have planned for the course to run from w/c 4th May until w/c 19th July.
This initial pilot training course is available to existing DA Leads in housing provider organisations who are currently going through DAHA accreditation. During the pilot phase, due to intellectual property protection issues, we are unable to accept participants not yet working towards DAHA accreditation.
We intend to run the course from 2022 as a formally accredited course, so participants who successfully complete the course and the assessment tasks will receive a Level 4 qualification. Participants who attend the pilot course will have the option of completing assessment tasks in order to apply for the qualification as soon as the course is accredited. This is expected before the end of 2021.
Learners must demonstrate that they have attended domestic abuse awareness training (such as the DAHA Safe at Home Awareness course) prior to attending this course.
By the end of this training learners will:
- Understand the dynamics and impact of domestic abuse
- Understand legislation and housing policy related to domestic abuse
- Know how to identify and respond to domestic abuse using best practice components
- Know how to improve domestic abuse survivor services, using DAHA as a model
- Know how to lead a housing organisation through the DAHA accreditation process
The spring 2021 cohort will be the pilot of this course so we are setting it at a reduced rate of £950 per person
This cost will increase for the next cohort
- Following each module, we will send learners a PDF of the PowerPoint presentation from that session to enable you to build a file over the 12 weeks.
- We will also provide a document containing handouts, further reading, watching and listening if you wish to explore the topics of domestic abuse and housing in more depth.
- We can arrange individual debrief calls to support wellbeing if it is requested by any of the learners.
