Building sustainable communities at BCU
Join the next generation of place-shapers
Creating and managing great places, strong communities where people want to live and work, requires skilled professionals from many disciplines. Practitioners also need flexible skills and broad knowledge in areas such as project management, community engagement, leadership and communication.
In response to this need Birmingham City University (BCU), in partnership with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), has launched a new Foundation Degree in Sustainable Communities which starts this month. The course will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to create and manage places covering topics like community safety, local economies and worklessness, environment, sustainable design, governance and community engagement.
The course will be delivered in collaboration with Staffordshire University, with some modules being delivered by a blended learning approach involving both institutions. The structure of the course has been specifically designed to support those practitioners involved in developing, delivering and maintaining sustainable communities. Study is offered on a part-time, day release basis to fit in with your work commitments.
And, to help with the costs of study the HCA Skills and Knowledge Directorate has agreed to support ten trainees with a bursary of £500 each for the first year - a great incentive to start the course this September!
