The Inland Waterways Association together with the Trust are running a new free course on ‘Managing Waterway Restoration’ which will be led by Dr Geraint Coles.
The project planning and management skills required to take a project from initial brainwave to a deliverable scheme which is likely to be funded. It will range widely and explore partnership working, getting the best out of consultants through to the management, governance and financial structures required at the key development stages.
Date: Saturday 22 October 2016
Location: Wigan, Trust offices
The practical management of project delivery from detailed build-design to project approvals (environmental & planning) thence on to site preparations and safety. The unit will introduce Construction Design Management principles and their importance to Health & Safety and the integration of contractors and volunteers on the same worksite.
The sustainability of waterway conservation, restoration and development projects. It will explore both “meanwhile uses” which may be used to generate income to support delivery of the project and those “end use” activities which are the long term goal. The importance of a robust business case and embedding sustainability into the project plan is emphasised.
We have decided to host the three parts of the course in different locations across the county. That way you only need to attend the session which is most convenient to you, you will receive the full course through comprehensive notes online. All sessions will run from 10:00am until 4:30pm, lunch included.
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place. Places are limited so be sure to book at your earliest convenience.
