Skills Capacity Roadmap

The stakeholder mix for flood risk and resilience is broad. From consultants and regulators, to infrastructure owners and communities.  The challenge is to understand the many learning and development needs so that we have a common knowledge and understanding, alongside specific knowledge needed for organisations to function effectively.

The Centre for Flood Risk and Resilience is developing a skills capacity roadmap for flood control methods, shaping and delivering the education solutions needed. It will co-create leading edge elements of the curriculum and the delivery methods needed to reach the wider skills-needs highlighted in the UK Industrial Strategy and the National Infrastructure Plan for Skills.

We recognise that the players in flood risk all have different needs – from basic to specialist.  Our aim is to create modules on a range of topics, and levels, that meet the continuing professional development needs of people involved with flood risk management and flood control methods. 

Our initial work focuses on understanding what stakeholders needs are, to then develop the e-learning tools that support their development.


Our survey is now live – please take a moment to share your thoughts and ideas on what are important areas for learning and development on flood risk management.  From your responses, we will create three new programmes in 2018 that we will make widely available.
