Future-focused – as new knowledge, technologies and processes emerge, you can be sure that our professional development programmes will remain ahead of the curve.  

Throughout your course you will be an active participant in the on-going research agenda that is at the heart of Newcastle Business School.

“Retaining and developing top quality talent is crucial as we compete for work across the UK and internationally. Ten per cent of our workforce is currently taking a course customised for us by Newcastle Business School. It integrates with the latest thinking on project management, which is a huge part of what we do, and it’s leading to better performing individuals and teams.”

We offer all construction-related organisations options for developing your leaders and workplace talent, increasing your capacity to deliver on-budget, on-schedule and environmentally-aware projects. We start by understanding the specific needs of your organisation so that we can develop options that will add value. Based on your situation, we will tailor an exclusive learning package with customised learning outcomes, examples and applications. We will deliver your chosen options at times and places that suit you.

Why not use a customised learning package to bring together new teams as a project start-up, or to help tackle particular challenges? We work with all types of organisations within the construction sector including; house builders, architectural practices, project consultancies, building services, surveyors and civil and structural engineers. 

Your organisation’s area of business must be construction-related.
