Community development practitioners build relationships with key people and organisations within their community in order to identify common concerns, create opportunities to learn new skills and help to foster social inclusion and equality. 

These qualifications will help you to develop the skills and knowledge you need to work effectively in your role and are thus suitable for anyone working, or looking to work, in community development in a voluntary or paid role.

The LRN Level 3 Award in European Community Development is designed to equip learners with the knowledge and skills to understand the key aspects of Community Development work and to be able to analyse how these are applied in practice.  Course assignments require candidates to reflect upon how the concepts covered within the classroom-based element of the course are put into practice in their job, work experience or volunteering role.
