Developing Training Courses for community groups

Request more details:

This workshop is designed for people who are required to deliver training to community workers or volunteers. There is an awareness that this training is often delivered at short notice and outside the traditional training room. Such training is often an effective method to strengthen the capacity of the group and give them the competence to deliver a quality service to the clients.
The participants are encouraged to bring a project or an existing training plan to the session. This can then form the basis of the training session and allow them to leave the session having made some modifications or improvements to their plan. They will learn to design a program that recognises the barriers to learning and participation in community groups and develops a strategy to anticipate and reduce such barriers in the training
