Course background

At the request of local authorities, IRRV is again 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.

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
  • Monthly award – assessment period
  • How UC is calculated with worked examples
  • Changes from April 2017
  • Applying for Universal Credit
  • Changes in circumstances and how they affect UC
  • Transferring existing customers onto UC - Transitional Protection – the current DWP plan
  • Claimant Commitment
  • Sanctions
  • Deductions from UC
  • Identifying current issues
  • 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.

The course will be facilitated by Paula Doherty. Paula is a leading benefits practitioner and a member of the IRRV Scottish Association Executive.
