CORE Training

CORE (COntinuous REcording) provides valuable information about new social housing lettings and sales, tenants and buyers across England.

CORE is an essential tool for monitoring housing costs and affordability in the social housing sector. Participating in CORE is highly beneficial, allowing landlords to review their lettings figures, produce performance information and explore trends in the sector. Ultimately this allows them to manage their business more effectively. Training is a key part of any successful collection system which produces accurate information.

If you new to CORE or need a refresher? If so, Acuity Research and Practice (Acuity) are running some Introductory/Refresher training courses over the next couple of months to help make sure you are collecting the data correctly and accurately.

All courses are run on-line (via Zoom/Teams) and are aimed at anyone working for a social landlord who is involved in the CORE process. The courses last about two hours and cover the background to CORE, reasons for collecting the data, common errors and how to avoid them and a step-by-step run through the lettings log. Training can also be arranged for those submitting sales logs.

The cost of these courses is £195 + VAT per person or for an organisation with up to 8 attendees the cost is £695 + VAT.

We currently have the following dates available:

  • Wednesday, 27 October
