Online Staff / Board Training for the Social Housing Sector

The Housing e-Academy specialises in the development of e-learning courses for staff and board members working in the social housing sector. We work closely with our housing members, as well as experts in the field to ensure that the training we offer is completely relevant and up to date with the latest laws and legislation.

Why choose e-learning?

Social housing specific e-learning courses can benefit the whole of your organisation. Some of our members use e-learning to complement face to face training, ensuring all individuals have the same basic level of understanding before attending classroom training. Other members use e-learning as an alternative to face to face training, allowing them to reduce the cost of delivery and allow all staff and board members to study at a time, place and pace to suit them.

How could e-learning work in your organisation?

The Housing e-Academy offers a range of membership packages which have been designed to ensure we can meet the training needs of all social housing providers. Regardless of the level of membership you choose, your Housing e-Academy Account Manager will support you through every stage of implementing e-learning within your organisation.

Staff and Board Member Training Packages - now with five FREE courses for all your staff!

To ensure we meet the training needs of every organisation, we have developed three membership packages; Bronze, Silver and Gold.

Bronze membership is the perfect starting point for organisations who have never used e-learning before. The easy to use features give you all the benefits of Housing e-Academy membership whilst keeping things simple so you can concentrate on rolling out e-learning to your staff.

Silver membership keeps the simplicity of the Bronze package but with a wider range of courses included. You get the added benefit of a larger structure framework for organising your learners. This package is great for organisations that are new to e-learning and are keen to implement a wide variety of courses.

Gold membership is perfect for organisations who want to provide a wide range of e-learning courses to their staff. You have the option of having a complex LMS structure to make reports more specific so you can track learner progress across different structural criteria. In addition, Gold membership allows you to change the look of your Learning Management System in line with your organisation’s branding*.

*Annual fee applies

In addition, we offer a bespoke Learning Management System solution - you tell us what you want your LMS to do and we'll create a package just for you!

Learning Management System

The Housing e-Academy's parent company, Virtual College, has developed a comprehensive Learning Management System (LMS) called Enable. Enable is an internet based system which allows users to access training from the office, home or any location with a standard internet connection. Enable manages and delivers all aspects of e-learning, from tracking learner progress and allowing you to assign courses to specific members of staff, to managing appraisals and running customised reports.

Enable is a highly flexible package and the level of functionality you require in your organisation will influence the membership package you choose.

Customer feedback

"By utilising the training packages that the Housing e-Academy has, we are able to offer more flexible solutions for our staff, especially in far away from head office locations. It has also provided value for money and we have saved in excess of £15K over the timeframe." - Steph Akerman, Learning & Development Consultant - Talent Team, Sovereign Housing Association

"One of the main reasons we selected the Housing e-Academy as our e-learning provider was due to their expertise and dedicated Account Management. Because the e-Academy specialise in providing e-learning specifically to the social housing sector, they understand our learning needs and are able to develop online courses which meet our requirements. If we need any extra support, there is always someone on the end of the phone who can help.

"The benefits brought about through working with the Housing e-Academy cemented our decision to upgrade our membership from Bronze to Platinum level, meaning we now have our own branded Learning Management System. We have only just scratched the surface of the LMS’s capabilities and we look forward to discovering all the benefits it can bring to staff learning at Moat." - Fiona Tidd, Learning & Development Business Partner, Moat Housing
