Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG) in Scotland has developed a new online resource, to help explain the basics of the benefits system and impending changes, suitable for anyone working with families at risk of poverty.

The 'Think! Benefits' course is for frontline workers who do not work in welfare rights but want to find out about the new universal credit to be introduced later this year.

You can create an e-learning account for free on the CPAG website. You will then have three weeks to complete the universal credit course. The courses take on average one hour to complete. Once you have submitted your evaluation, you can then print your certificate.
