Abstract

Generic skills deficiencies in the built environment professions have been recognised recently by government, professional bodies and employers in the UK, which has jeopardised the delivery of sustainable urban regeneration enshrined in the ‘new urban agenda’. Consequently a wide variety of initiatives have been lunched national wide in searching for potential solutions to address the issue. These include the establishment of Academy for Sustainable Communities (ASC) and its pilot project to set up ‘Learning laboratory’ in each English region. This paper discourses the background of Learning laboratory Projects and one ongoing case in South East England. It draws on the preliminary work of a consultancy team in the University of Greenwich involving these projects.
