CEM, based in Reading, provides supported distance learning for people in the property and construction industries worldwide. Each year it enrols thousands of students in the UK, Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, the Gulf region and the Far East.
From January this year, CEM was granted Taught Degree Awarding Powers by the UK’s Privy Council, putting the College on a par with universities for the first time. It is the first not-for-profit, solely distance learning institution to gain this coveted status.

How do we ensure a future for our past in a time of austerity? This question was explored by English Heritage Commissioner Jane Kennedy, at the College of Estate Management’s annual Alumni CPD Lecture and Networking Event.
This event on February 14 at the Carpenters’ Hall, London, was attended by around 90 guests, including College alumni and students. As well as giving guests a chance to network and to find out more about CEM’s courses, it also offered two fascinating talks and presentations on conservation and our built heritage.
