Since 2008 a number of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) have worked in partnership with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), and the HCAs predecessors, to develop and deliver a Foundation Degree in Sustainable Communities (FdSc). The aim of this study was to analyse and reflect on the FdSc programme and delivery between 2008-2011. There were a number of specific objectives: to explore the impact of the FdSc; to identify lessons that could be learned; to provide recommendations around the FdSc for the current HEIs delivering the FdSc, potential HEIs and the HCA; to explore and develop a sustainable preferred option for the continuation of the FdSc Network of HEIs (available in a separate report). The approach to this study involved bringing together various sources as well as consultations with key stakeholders involved in the delivery of the FdSc. This research was produced in partnership with the FdSc Network who have assisted in data collation and commented on drafts of this report.
