In any job it's important to take a step back and look at how things are going, and how they could be improved.  This course will help you to assess how you are doing as a community development worker, as well as helping the groups you work with to do this themselves.

Part of Agored Cymru Accredited Unit EE33CY047.

Being a community development worker, whether as a volunteer or staff, can be quite hectic. Often, we move straight from one task to the next without a break. Stepping back and reflecting on how things are going, what’s working or not working, and how things could be changed will help us learn and perhaps do things more effectively in the future. Reflection is a useful tool for both us personally and the groups we work with. This course looks at both the theory behind this and at practical methods to accomplish it.

This course is part of the Level 3 Agored Community Development Award, though this is a ‘stand-alone’ training course and you can attend just this day, if you prefer.

Course Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the value of learning from community development practice.
  • Explain why reflective practice is key to own development as a community development practitioner.
  • Describe how to assist others to reflect on and review community development practice.

Course Fees:

  • SCVS Members - Full Day Course £20
  • Non SCVS Members / Individuals - Full Day Course £150

To ensure that the payment of fees is not a barrier to attending courses, we provide some places at reduced cost to individuals receiving benefit/out of county third sector organisations. Please contact the Training Team if you would like to apply for a bursary.
