Introduction to Community Development

Are you a woman who is interested in developing your skills to work in your community?

Interested in developing and supporting services for the good of your area?

An Cosán Virtual Community College (VCC’s) Introduction to Community Development course could be for you! We have a limited number of places available for women to join this course.

Funded by the City & Guilds Group, VCC is partnering with community groups in West Donegal, Letterkenny, Inishowen and Derry to bring higher education into communities via blended learning.

Starting 30th January 2018, Introduction to Community Development (ICD) is highly interactive and will be delivered through blended learning, with a mixture of face-to-face workshops and online, virtual classes.

ICD will lead to a QQI Level 6 (UK Level 4) Certificate in Introduction to Community Development (10 credits)
