The RLA has launched a new course that is designed to break down the key pieces of legislation on equality and diversity for landlords.
The Equality and Diversity course, launched today, was developed by Open Doors, a lottery funded project that promotes equality in the private rented sector, and is supported by charity Tai Pawb and the RLA.
The new course is free, and it is appropriate for landlords in England and Wales, and covers a range of issues such as discrimination, harassment and cultural awareness,
Commenting on the launch of the new course today, Sarah Vining, Open Doors project lead said:
“Open Doors is working to reduce inequality and discrimination in the private rented sector, and upskilling landlords and helping them to improve their knowledge is one of the major ways in which we are trying to do this. We are thrilled to have the support of the RLA and be able to offer their members this learning opportunity, which we hope will increase their confidence to rent to diverse and vulnerable groups.”
The Open Doors project is run by charity Tai Pawb and supported by the RLA. The project has been running for 16 months, and in November it scooped the ‘New Ideas and Approaches Award’ at the Welsh Housing Awards.
Landlords and agents can sign up to the free course on the RLA’s Training Academy website.
