Event description

Description

The Institute of Place Management would like to invite you to a new place management and development employers' forum, which is being hosted by Sheffield City Council, on 30th January 2018, 2 to 5pm that will explore the potential for apprenticeships for Local Authorities, Business Improvement Districts and for regeneration/development companies and other place partnerships.

The aim is to assess the potential for apprenticeship standards to support a range of place management and development organisations deliver transformative place change across all functions.

The Institute of Place Management, in consultation with employers including Sheffield City Council and both Brixton and Norwich Business Improvement Districts, believe new apprenticeship standards are needed because there is currently nothing that supports the type of place-focused and cross-sector work that organisations that are responsible for delivering sustainable, successful and better places need.

Fairer economic development, vibrant culture, place identity and distinctiveness, resilience, sustainability, liveability, smart efficiencies, engaged stakeholders and a participatory society etc. are the type of place outcomes that are being aspired to but these require cultural change and new forms of knowledge, skills and behaviours in employees if they are to be achieved.

If you are interested in attending this event, please let Tom Hindmarch (t.hindmarch@mmu.ac.uk) know by 23rd January 2018. If you would like to discuss apprenticeships beforehand then please contact Professor Cathy Parker (c.parker@mmu.ac.uk). A draft agenda for the event is below.
