Two-day training is open to all member institutions (one free place per member institution) and aims to equip individuals to lead community organising in their institutions. It is not passive. Attendees are expected to participate and learn actively during the course, then, with the support of our Community Organiser, lead a listening campaign and a process of community organising over the following six months.
The training will cover all essential aspects of the curriculum for community organising, including:
|1. Listening – Why and how to communicate self-interest, do 121s, listen for issues affecting people in your institution|
|2. Issues – How to present issues and work with others to prioritise issues in a broad-based organisation|
|3. Research – How to research common issues, analyse power and plan SMART campaign goals|
|4. Action – How to understand different cultures and organise a public action|
|5. Negotiation – How to generate turnout and negotiate with power holders|
|6. Evaluation – How to evaluate, celebrate, reflect on power and leadership, develop a habit of action|
Although Two-Day Training is intended primarily for leaders from member institutions, for whom there is no charge, a few places are available for fee-paying individuals from non-member institutions: £150 for leaders from civil society institutions, £500 for those from large organisations. In some cases, places can be subsidised by funding from other sources.
