C-ODE Course

Congratulations to the thirteen learners who received their Level 2 and 3 accredited certificates for the Working in C-ODE course in April.

Woking in C -ODE is our shorthand for a year long course, about Working in Community Organisations, Development and Engagement. It grew out of the WICO (Working in Community Organisation Course) that TDC has been running for many years.

Through the course we covered community development values and principles like self-determination, where people are free to choose their own actions.

We explored inequality, social justice and diversity and discussed TED talk clips like Yassmin Abdel-Magied’s  ‘What does my headscarf mean to you’.

We looked at community group development and dynamics, which included learning all about how the chairs in a room can change the power balance in a meeting. The group also found out about assessing community assets and needs, and explored lots of creative ways for communities to identify the strengths they have.

Everyone chose an optional unit and had time to delve into what they were interested in, like running a community project or a campaign or raising funding for community activities.

We would like to say a big congratulations and very well done to all the learners on the course
