Venue: Conference Room, Third Sector Dumfries and Galloway

A partnership between Third Sector Dumfries and Galloway and Dumfries and Galloway College has led to the development of a Professional Development Award (PDA) in Community Involvement at SCQF level 7. 

The PDA will cover the principles and practice of involvement in community capacity building and the social context in which capacity building occurs.

Units covered include:

  • Capacity Building
  • Group Work
  • Accountability for and Management of Resources

Furthermore, it will build on participants' existing knowledge and experience and serve as a progression route to further study at HNC/SVQ3/4 or University Degree level.

The mode of delivery will be a mixture of workshops/seminars and self-directed study over an 18 week period, including attendance at Dumfires and Galloway College Campus, Dumfries.
