Course content

This course will provide the opportunity to develop and improve your skills, knowledge and understanding of a range of regeneration-related disciplines, enabling you to make a key contribution to the work of your organisation.

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 for Practitioners is accredited by the Institute of Economic Development (IED), enabling you on completion to apply for membership.

Delivered through the University of Chester’s Work Based and Integrative Studies (WBIS) framework, our course provides individually negotiated learning pathways to meet your needs and those of your organisation.

Unlike other university-level regeneration courses, this course emphasises the use of your professional practice to gain academic credit, using theory to inform practice and negotiate your own programme of learning.
