Community-Based Project Development and Management

Our Community-Based Project Development and Management short course introduces important issues and principles for developing and managing community-based projects, using 'input sessions' incorporating action learning to deliver the essential content. It covers key areas for community activists and project co-ordinators and leaders, including project definition, business planning, partnerships, implementation, monitoring and evaluation, and fundraising strategies. The course will be delivered using case studies and peer mentoring by speakers with practical experience and, whenever possible, in the community or through interactive learning.

This can be taken as a standalone short course or as a part of:
