Course content

Regeneration is concerned with the physical, social, environmental and economic development of communities. It is central to the work of a wide range of public, private and voluntary sector agencies, including local authorities, registered social landlords and community-based agencies. Regeneration provides a central role in creating sustainable communities.

The programme is ideal for those who recognise the potential of learning through work and are prepared to assume a high degree of responsibility for their own learning. It offers flexible and adaptable study for those seeking professional development opportunities, and for whom customised programmes relating directly to the work setting are the most effective way of achieving their objectives.

- Urban and Regional Regeneration Policy
- Leading and Managing People
- The Economic Function of the City
