An on-line training workshop over two mornings
11th and 13th January 2022
IRRV is running this workshop to give attendees an in-depth overview of Universal Credit and the detail that local authority, housing association and other key staff require to know. It is fully updated to ensure the latest UC information is included.
We will continue to deliver training events virtually through the GoTo or Microsoft Teams platforms. This will allow for a full training day but spread over two mornings and will allow for full audience interaction and Q&A sessions in addition to a full training presentation.
Aim: The workshop is ideally suited to staff who are required to have a better understanding of Universal Credit. It is also suited to the wider benefits and welfare sector involved in assisting or advising those who have, or need, to claim Universal Credit.
The programme includes:
- What is Universal Credit?
- Conditions of entitlement
- Gateway conditions
- Monthly award – assessment period
- How UC is calculated with worked examples
- Applying for Universal Credit
- Changes in circumstances and how they affect UC
- Mixed Age couples and Universal Credit
- Transferring existing customers onto UC - Transitional Protection – the current DWP plan
- Alternative Payment Arrangements – Scottish Choices
- Claimant Commitment/Sanctions
- Deductions from UC
- Review, questions and closure
The day is designed to be interactive and promotes sharing of knowledge and best practice. Timings are indicative and are subject to change on the day.
COURSE LEADER : Paula Doherty, Team Leader - Benefits and Welfare, Dumfries and Galloway Council
The course will be facilitated by Paula Doherty. Paula is a leading benefits practitioner, the IRRV Scottish Association President and Education Liaison Officer for Scotland. Paula is also Chair of the IRRV Welfare Reform Consortium.
