This course uses Lisson Grove’s Quick Benefits Calculator (QBC) to examine some of the benefits rules that are needed to complete accurate calculations for Universal Credit.

This course can be booked as a single one-day course or as part of a discounted two-day course with Calculating benefits and tax credits (QBC) on 13th June.

  • Be familiar with Lisson Grove’s QBC and how to input information;
  • Have an understanding of how Universal Credit is calculated;
  • Understand how QBC calculates UC Housing Element for different tenant groups;
  • Be familiar with the different elements within Universal Credit and how QBC recognises them;

  • Be able to complete better off calculations when someone moves into work;
  • Be able to recognise typical data entry errors when using QBC;
  • Have access to advice regarding any QBC related question for 12 months after the course.

This is a practical course. It is delivered using a combination of trainer presentation, group work and exercises, case studies, group discussion and games.
