Level 3 - Project managers/ directors
“Inequalities in health arise because of inequalities in society… taking action to reduce health inequalities does not require a separate health agenda but action across the whole of society.” (Fair Society, Healthy Lives, 2010)
In the master classes participants will:
• explore the following 6 themes – community development, health inequalities, economy, sustainability, partnership working and research
• reflect on how they, and their organisations, can be more engaged in these wider issues which shape and determine society.
• examine the potential of community development as a process to address inequalities at an organisational, regional and national level
This training takes place one day a fortnight over a 12 week period.
“I have increased my knowledge on the topic areas and have a comprehensive information pack to refer to. I also feel like I can contact CDHN if I need any further information or support because good links have been made”.
“Going to apply learning to progress area of work. Has made me think of how we as an organisation could link to other communities and departments to make policy changes”.
"Really liked the inter-active participatory nature of the training, loved the calibre of speakers, so experienced, knowledgeable in their areas and good communicators with the group. Like opportunities to apply the learning points of speakers to our own areas of work."
"Offers a chance to reflect on the work I do and the reasons I do it. Chance to ask questions to those making the policy decision and lower the barriers or perceived barriers is a fantastic opportunity."
"The master classes provide a unique opportunity to access the knowledge and expertise of people at the top of their field".
"I feel re-energised and inspired at a time of great uncertainity in the Community Sector"
