About Our Training Courses

‘AWICS’ provides a wide range of training opportunities through regional seminars, in-house training sessions and webinars. Our principal trainer is Adrian Waite. All our trainers are selected not only for their professional qualifications, knowledge and experience, but also for their ability to explain complex and technical matter to a wide range of individuals. We are constantly expanding the range of training opportunities that we offer and the range of clients that we serve.

Regional Seminars

Delivery: Our regional seminars are held in venues in Scotland, Wales, London and the regions of England and address a range of topics of relevance to those with an interest in public services including local government and social housing. All our regional seminars are also available as in-house courses.

Topics offered: The annually updated ‘All You Want to Know about…’ series is designed to provide an introduction and overview of key topics, such as Local Authority Housing Finance, Service Charges, Local Government Finance, and Housing Association Finance.
