University of Central Lancashire
The course examines common issues faced by community leaders within the current global context and prepares students to work both nationally and internationally; students focus on developing grassroots interest in communities, with an emphasis on practical group learning activity, peer leadership and interaction; the course focuses on those who have previously been excluded from community leadership roles, such as women, younger members of society and ethnic minority students; this programme has been developed from the best practice of the successful BA Hons in Community Leadership and from the need to provide a substantial programme, underpinned by core philosophical and ideological tools, that builds the capacity of key individuals to become effective leaders within their communities.
