A DoE research report on education and training in housing management in the social housing sector, was published today.

It aims to establish a general picture of current practice, identify key issues and constraints and provide a basis for more effective future planning and monitoring.

Case studies carried out with four local authorities and four housing associations selected to reflect differences in size, location and style involved: Kirklees MBC, East Hampshire DC, Brighton BC, York CC, Bradford and Northern HA, Unity HA, Notting Hill housing trust and the SHAPE Group.

Welcoming the report, housing minister Sir George Young said: 'The housing management world is rapidly changing with the introduction of initiatives such as compulsory competitive tendering (CCT) and the Right to Manage. The emergence of new housing management organisations, together with the growth of existing housing associations, makes the need for more good information and better training on housing issues all the more important.

'I want everyone providing housing management training to think more clearly about the changing needs of housing practitioners to ensure they are fully equipped to meet the developments of the new housing world. This report will greatly assist this process.'
