Qualifications and Training
As a technical role, a regeneration officer/co-ordinator requires a BSc Honours Degree in a construction, engineering, or environmental related subject in England; the equivalent L6 NVQ / HNC in Wales, or the Scottish equivalent, will most likely be required. Some positions will require a Masters Degree as well, or chartered status with a relevant body.
However, experience is often very important too, so entrants with other qualifications might be considered. For example, experience of sustainable design, current and forthcoming building regulations, and low/zero carbon technology are important.
