Level 5 Award in
Urban Resilience
and Major City Management

Strategic planning and management of major cities is fast becoming one of the central issues of 21st century risk and crisis management, as well as urban planning in general. The growth of even middle-size cities has gone beyond what their infrastructures were designed to manage, and there is a growing realisation that many of the structural and organisational frameworks that have been designed to support city management are either no longer fit for purpose, or are reaching the limits of their ability to model, understand and engage with the challenges associated with modern major city management.

Terrorism Prevention and Management is not something that can happen in isolation. It requires the buy-in of everyone involved in an organisation, as well as the development of a wider network of personal and professional connections that creates a safe and security environment, rather than focussing on securing isolated components. This course covers all of the significant issues that need to be taken into account when creating a holistic, integrated and, above all, sustainable terrorism awareness and management programme.
