Overview

Our Community-Based Project Development and Management short course introduces you to the important issues and principles for developing and managing community-based projects, using 'input sessions' incorporating action learning to deliver the essential content.

We will cover key areas for community activists and project co-ordinators and leaders, including:

  • project definition
  • business planning
  • partnerships
  • implementation
  • monitoring and evaluation
  • fundraising strategies.

This course is delivered using case studies and peer mentoring by speakers with practical experience and, whenever possible, in the community or through interactive learning.

Assessment is via a 2000-word project plan (40%) and 3000-word critical practice essay (60%).

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