“WE INSPIRE PEOPLE TO BELIEVE THAT THEY CAN!”
The Tenancy Skills Institute was developed in response to an identified need within our community. Property Managers and Agents told us they were increasingly working with tenants who do not have the basic level of skills required to sustain a tenancy. Many potential tenants do not even get a chance to prove themselves, because their application is not considered strong. This is even worse in areas with low vacancy rates.
In early 2017, inCommunity Inc. committed to developing a training package for potential tenants that would address this issue and create a new wave of tenants – people who were not only aware of their rights and responsibilities, but who could also effectively communicate with their landlords, clean properly and manage their finances.
The Tenancy Skills Institute aims to create ‘Tenants of Choice’. Graduates from the program have proven competency in the skillsets identified by Property Managers and Agents. This will give them a competitive advantage when applying for properties.
WHERE DO WE TRAIN?
We are currently delivering this program exclusively in Queensland – if you are located in another state or territory and would like to see the Tenancy Skills Institute in your area please get in contact with us.
