SOCIAL AND TECHNICAL SUSTAINABILITY
  • The course aims to equip students with the
    necessary awareness/understanding of the various
    dimensions of sustainability environmental,
    economic and social.

10
The course is structured into two blocks
  • Block A focuses on social aspects of the
    sustainability concept
  • the aim is to equip students with the knowledge,
    analytical tools, and approaches to community
    engagement, to develop and argue for socially
    appropriate housing responses.

11
  • Block B focuses on technical aspects.
  • The environmental/resource dimension will
    provide the framework for understanding human
    settlements policy and practice in response to
    environmental and policy constraints.

12
INFORMAL SETTLEMENTS (IS) UPGRADING
  • The course aims to
  • equip students with the necessary understanding
    of informal settlements as human settlements, and
  • frame IS upgrading with the understanding that
    various strands of policy (financial, regulatory,
    construction, participation, planning) need in
    order to speak to this.

13
The course is structured into two blocks
  • The first block focuses on understanding informal
    settlements as complex human settlements and
    comparing different approaches to them

14
  • The second block introduces various approaches to
    informal settlement upgrading in South Africa and
    related policy and practice.
  • The content involves the analysis, synthesis and
    application in the specific area of participatory
    informal settlement upgrading.

15
HUMAN SETTLEMENTS AND HOUSING THEORY,
CONCEPTS AND POLICY
  • The course introduces participants to the local
    and international literature on core aspects of
    housing.
  • Participants are expected to
  • engage critically with existing discourses on
    housing policy, both local and international.
  • be able to draw on contrasting policies from
    other countries, while being able to reflect on
    the political, economic and social conditions
    that allowed these to be developed in their
    particular context.

16
  • The course encourages a commitment to addressing
    the housing crisis.
  • case studies from other countries are brought
    into the discussion in order to explore
    alternative scenarios.

17
HOUSING FINANCE AND THE LAW
  • The course aims to equip students with the
    necessary understanding of the various dimensions
    of housing finance, and to rights and legislation
    that apply to housing.

18
  • The course deals in depth with the evolution of
    housing policy, housing rights and legislation in
    South Africa, particularly since 1994.
  • This is placed in an international context,
    allowing us to explore both the broader global
    developments from which South Africa is no longer
    isolated, and to explore alternatives to the
    South African scenario.

19
  • While the course seeks to link housing finance to
    questions of rights and legislation, and how
    these jointly shape the built environment, the
    course to some extent is divided into two
    separate sections
  • The first block deals with housing finance.
  • The second focuses on rights and legislation.

20
MANAGEMENT OF EXISTING HOUSING STOCK
  • The aim of the course is to equip students to
    deal with the key issues of how to manage and
    maintain rental housing stock and how to
    undertake client services.
  • The course introduces students to the basic tools
    and techniques for running and managing existing
    housing stock.

21
  • The course will highlight the basic principles
    and processes to be followed in managing
    residential stock from demand assessment,
    marketing, allocations, leasing, maintenance,
    tenant relationship management and customer
    service to the policies, human resources and
    organisational management required.
  • Current issues and debates in the field, both in
    South Africa and internationally will also be
    addressed.

22
The course is structured into two blocks
  • The first block focuses on the definitions of
    property and facilities management the
    development of housing property management
    history perspective from the UK, South
    Africa, and
  • demand assessment, marketing, waiting lists,
    allocations, lease and rental administration and
    the legal aspects of tenant relationship
    management.

23
  • The second block introduces rent administration,
    setting affordability rent collection
    managing empty properties dealing with arrears
    eviction, tenant participation, customer service
    complaints
  • case studies on the tenant landlord
    relationship will be addressed how to organise
    the property management function and property
    maintenance.

24
An additional short course is the BASIC
COURSE IN PARTICIPATORY COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
TECHNIQUES, THEORIES AND METHODS
  • The purpose of the course is to equip students
    with the necessary understanding of participatory
    approaches, the relative institutional models and
    organisational methods.
  • The course aims to provide students with a basic
    understanding and knowledge of participatory
    methodologies, understanding potentials and
    criticalities, especially through practical
    training, simulations and exercises.
  • this is a non credit bearing course

25
  • The main aim is to enable participants to plan an
    entire participatory community development
    programme,
  • selecting the most suitable approaches and
    understanding the different phasing and
    techniques to be used for a specific case/context.

26
The course is structured into three blocks
  • The first block focuses on understanding of
    community participation, from the theoretical
    foundations to the practical approaches,
  • giving an overview of different types of
    participatory methods and some recent innovations.

27
  • The second block introduces various approaches
    and related institutional models, relative
    policies and their linkage to practice.

28
  • The third block is practical training in the form
    of 3 workshops, focusing on basic aspects of
    practising community participatory development
    through a series of exercises.
  • Participants will also learn how to identify,
    select and perform different participatory
    methods and tools, depending on their
    implications in terms of different outcomes,
    involvement and role of different stakeholders.

29
  • (this is a stand-alone practical training course
    at NQF level 5 and does not count towards a
    Masters degree)
  • Admission requirements for the Basic
    Participatory Course
