The Tenancy Skills Institute is delivering Skillsets for Successful Tenancies - Dollars and Sense, a free, competency-based training program which up skills people who are wanting to enter the private rental market.
The program is designed to help tenants successfully secure and keep a rental tenancy. Because of this, if you are at risk of losing a current tenancy, but unsure where you're going wrong or how to steer your rental journey back on track, this program will equip you with skills and knowledge that are key to taking control in a positive way.
