Community learning professionals engage with people living within a geographical area or sharing a common interest to develop a range of learning, action and reflection opportunities determined by their personal, social, economic and political needs.
The Community Learning and Development (Hons) course from University of Dundee has been designed around the concept of the self-monitoring critically reflective professional, in other words the willingness and ability of professionals to question, analyse, and evaluate their values, practices and experiences.
During your time on the course you will experience a range of teaching methods, such as lectures, seminars, practice based learning, projects and e-learning.
With the support of tutors you will be encouraged to become an independent learner and to participate in a range of peer learning communities.
Experienced practitioners also contribute to the delivery of the course and this supports your engagement with the ongoing changes in the professional field of practice.
The knowledge and skills that you acquire on this course will prepare you for a variety of employment opportunities in working with adults, young people and communities in both the statutory and voluntary sector.
This qualification is especially attractive to employers because it includes studying policy initiatives in relation to social justice and partnership working between local authority departments; further education; housing associations; health services; employment agencies; and the police services.
