To inform the update of the Social Housing Qualification, the twelve Social Housing Units of Competency and the development of two Skill Sets, a Social Housing Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) comprised of stakeholders and subject matter experts from across Australia was formed. Formation of the TAC informed the identification and validation of the exact nature of the skills needs and knowledge requirements in the industry, and the respective Training Package Product update requirements.
The Social Housing TAC worked on updating one Qualification and twelve existing Units of Competency and developing one new Unit of Competency. These were released for public consultation in December 2019.
As a result, the following changes have been proposed:
- The following twelve Draft 2 Social Housing Units of Competency are now included in the Draft 2 validation:
o CHCSOH013 Work with people experiencing or at risk of homelessness
o CHCSOH014 Manage and maintain tenancy agreements and services
o CHCSOH015 Manage housing application and allocation processes
o CHCSOH016 Manage tenancy rent and rental arrears
o CHCSOH017 Manage vacant properties
o CHCSOH018 Respond to property maintenance enquiries
o CHCSOH019 Manage head lease
o CHCSOH020 Develop quality systems in line with registration standards
o CHCSOH021 Work with clients within the social housing system
o CHCSOH022 Develop social housing enterprise opportunities
o CHCSOH023 Acquire properties by purchase or transfer
o CHCSOH024 Support sustainable tenancies.
