Using the Institute's successful day-long worked example of the fictional town of Bloombridge, this Masterclass is a practical way to absorb the opportunities and problems arising from the localism agenda.
The themes explored include:-
• Neighbourhood dynamics
• Local referendums & associated popular campaigns
• The new 'right-to-buy' community assets
• New local authority powers over public health and crime & police
Suitable for officers from all local service providers and elected members.

Attendance at this course gives 40 credits towards the Institute's Certificate of Professional Development
To help participants absorb the key issues, this Course uses a realistic end-to-end Consultation Simulation, with eight short exercises at various stages of the agenda and designed to highlight specific learning points.
This complements presentations and Group discussions and provides an opportunity to think through practical application of key issues.
