PDW are leaders in development staff training in the UK.

Throughout our history we have provided bespoke training to development staff, teams and governing bodies.

Recognising the growing need for more new development expertise within HA’s and LA’s, PDW have now designed in depth training courses covering every aspect of the development process as well as providing context for the UK housing sector.

We have designed courses, (usually 1 day per week or 2 days per month), running 4 times per year throughout the UK. Courses can be from 10 weeks to 52 weeks depending on requirements.

We can provide places for development staff from housing associations and local authorities on existing courses or deliver courses to individual organisations if required.

Our courses also refer to detailed development procedure guidance which is available to all delegates.

Our case study for our current work with Bristol Housing Partnership (BHP) is a good example of the in depth courses we now deliver.
