Update on the review of the Community Development National Occupational Standards

The phase 2 consultation closed on 12th December and the final draft standards are being prepared for discussion by the Review Implementation Group in January. Once they have been approved by that group they will be uploaded onto the UKCES website for formal approval. We hope that the newly revised CDNOS will be formally approved by the end of March 2015.  All participants in the consultation process have been contacted and will have one last chance to comment on the final draft. Thanks again to all the hundreds of Community Development practitioners, across Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland and England, who have taken part and contributed their thoughts and ideas. We will put further updates on progress here.

Supporting Good Quality Community Development Learning and Practice

The Federation has a long-established reputation for the excellence of our skills and knowledge and our high quality training expertise.

 

Strategic and project work 

 

FCDL has always played a leading role in the development and reviews of the Community Development National Occupational Standards, (CD NOS). We currently hold custodianship of the CD NOS, in partnership with our youth work colleagues.

 

All our past funded projects have provided free and customised development and learning support to a range of small, diverse and marginalised community groups. This work has  provided us with the opportunity to learn from community led groups and networks bringing diverse perspectives, insights and experiences.
