Community development is about helping people gain the skills and confidence to act together to improve their own community. This course looks at the core values behind community development -- including equality, empowerment, social justice and collective action – and the practicalities of applying these to your work.

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 a value based approach to community activities
  • Analyse how the application of community development values and processes develops communities
  • Evaluate community activities against the purpose and processes of community development

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.
