Introduction to Economic Development CPD Course

September 17 @ 9:00 am - September 24 @ 12:00 pm

Recent events have highlighted both the importance of a strong economy and the fragility of our current economic model to sudden change.

In such times, it is all the more important for economic professionals to be up-to-speed with the latest developments and emerging trends and insights.

This course on Introduction to Economic Development is designed as a refresh and for people new to the role in local authorities, regional and national agencies and other organisations. It will cover key policies and strategies, and institutional arrangements, relevant to the Scottish setting. And it will discuss the future direction of travel, including around the transition to net zero and the drive toward a well-being economy.

The course will also provide an accessible introduction into the world of economic development through the lens of the Scottish economy. Key terms and data sources will be covered, alongside a discussion of Scotland’s economic strengths and weaknesses at both a national and local level.

We’ll spend some time talking about ‘hot topics’ of the day.

This online CPD course will take place on MSTeams over the following dates:

  • Tuesday 17th September – 09:00 – 12:00
  • Tuesday 25th September – 09:00 – 12:00
