Regeneration Brainery

Immersive Learning for Young People

PLACED is working with Capital & Centric to deliver Regeneration Brainery, a pioneering programme for 16 – 21 year olds.

Backed by Homes England, Regeneration Brainery encourages young people into careers in property and regeneration.

Regeneration Brainery is free for young people. The progamme mixes immersive learning with mentoring from leading industry figures.

In 2018, we co-delivered the first Regeneration Brainery in Manchester. We recruited 25 young people for the five-day programme, which ran over the Easter holiday.

We developed a unique programme and activities. Brainees visited live projects and made valuable connections. They also delivered a hands-on project – a response to the exciting vision for Mayfield, Manchester – an area rich in industrial heritage and future potential. The project was supported by successful professionals from Greater Manchester. Brainees got a taste of what it’s like to work as an architect, designer, planner or engineer.

Our PLACED Ambassadors supported activities and were on hand to provide inspiration and advice about future careers.

PLACED is co-delivering Regeneration Brainery Birmingham later this year.
