The Chartered Institute of Housing has introduced set of professional standards setting out the knowledge, skills and behaviour which underpin the great work that housing professionals do every day.
With more than 100 years’ experience in learning and knowledge, CIH has collaborated with hundreds of members, tenants and residents, housing organisations and other professional bodies to develop a set of standards that can be used by everyone working in housing, whatever their role or specialism.
The standards identify seven professional characteristics which encourage individuals to reflect on their professional development needs and identify where they can make positive changes. By using the standards, individuals demonstrate their dedication to the sector, develop new and existing behaviours and champion the role housing professionals play in making a difference to the residents and communities they work with every day.
