|The Advice Work Skills (AWS) course|
PLEASE CONTACT THE TRAINING DEPARTMENT ON: 0114 280 3920 FOR ALL TRAINING ENQUIRIES
This course is for new advice workers, and for other professionals requiring a thorough grounding in welfare entitlements. It covers both skills - such as interviewing - and knowledge - from the full range of benefits to housing, debt, and employment
We run a further short programme of more in-depth training on benefits and tax credits as an optional follow-on after each course - the Intermediate Benefits Course. This is for trainees requiring a more detailed knowledge for their advice work.
The full course programme is available here. We give priority in bookings for this course to those who are able to attend all 10 days, but will also accept bookings for individual days if spaces are available.
See our bookings and fees page for details.
AWS Course Information for Organisations
A booklet is available for organisations who send trainees on the course, outlining the requirements of the course and how you can support trainees.

Course Information for Trainees
Topics covered are those which advice centres agree are the basic minimum to become an advice worker.
Trainees must take responsibility for joining in, attendance and asking for help if you are having problems. The final decision about whether or not you are ready to begin advising clients is decided between you and your agency.
