Comments about Master Organisation and Community Development - At the institution - London - Greater London

  • Objectives
    The course is unique among Masters in the field of community development in concentrating on the integration of policy, evidence based methods, and management. The focus is consistently on community development as a strategy rather than the operation of large organisations. The course builds on London Metropolitan's experience of running programmes for refugee organisations, examining and building on the analysis of the skills of refugees and the job opportunities that are available for them. The course will enable graduates to bring their knowledge and skills to bear on: -refugee community organisations run by and for refugees -other community-based organisations serving refugees as part of a wider group -statutory agencies with responsibility for community development in areas with a refugee population The course is also relevant and appropriate to people not currently specifically working with refugees. This is because on the course you will learn skills and knowledge based on more general theory and practice, and also because all organisations and community development workers need to have competences that equip them to work inclusively with all sections of the community.
