Seven-session training course running from April - June 2013
This course is now fully booked.
This course is accredited and will give learners a deeper understanding of community development values and community group work. Taking part in this course can help prepare learners for employment in community development work or develop the knowledge of those already involved in working with community members and groups.
The two units for this course are part of the new nationally recognised qualification structure for Community Development.
Who is this course for?
This course is aimed at people who have a reasonably broad based experience of working with groups within community settings, either as a unpaid or paid worker, or as a volunteer.
This course gives a combination of activity based training, guided learning and tutorial support. You will need to spend at least 20 hours covering the course units and additional time to study and reflect on how to link the learning to your work in communities.
This course is FREE to community and voluntary sector participants through lottery funding. Workers employed by public sector organisations are offered subsidised places at £50 per person.
These courses are also open to people who are one of the four Creating Changes Demonstration Project community groups. Please tick the box on the booking form section if you are a member of one of these groups.
