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.

Course overview

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.

Why Study Regeneration for Practitioners with us?

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.

What will I learn?

We have developed a programme of study that is specific to your needs, and you will have access to regeneration-specific modules such as Urban and Regional Regeneration Policy, The Economic Function of the City, Social Exclusion, and Financial Management for Regeneration, as well as a wider range of more generic WBIS modules, including subjects such as Programme and Project Management.

How will I be taught?

The course is delivered through a mixture of workshops, face-to-face tutorials and an online virtual learning environment.

Module workload and contact time is 200 hours in total, comprising 80 hours’ work-based learning, 20 hours’ tutor contact, and 100 hours’ private/peer learning.

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed through assignments which are individually negotiated with tutors to ensure learning is relevant to your needs. Your tutors will give you feedback on drafts of your work.
