About the courseThis programme - developed by community leaders, for community leaders - is designed to give people working at grass roots level the tools they need to make change happen. You’ll develop skills in leadership, project development and management, and find out how to fund and effectively manage action groups, so your community can take control of its own regeneration. The idea is that everything you learn, you pass on to your peer groups through mentoring - a cascade effect that sustainably improves the community for everyone. You’ll graduate fully prepared to lead your community - and it’s the perfect stepping stone to a further Honours degree.
