Tenancy Ready Training
This course helps you to move into and look after your own tenancy. The training can be done at your own pace with your support worker or a group session and once finished you will receive a Tenancy Ready certificate. The course is delivered by tutors in the Training Centre or support workers within schemes. You can discuss this further with your support worker or the Training Centre Manager.
