Following undertaking Citizens UK 6 day national training, leaders who wish to take advantage of the accreditation scheme should complete a 50 hour placement to put their community organising knowledge and methodology into practice.
Once this has been completed, a feedback report should be completed in the portfolio, and a short presentation prepared. Each year there are two 'reunions' that take place in each region (one on a Saturday and one in the evening) where alumni can gather together and share their learnings and progress, and hear from others working locally. We hope that these will be a chance to connect up and get inspired, as well as complete the necessary processes for gaining a certificate in Community Organising.
For more information on the portfolio, certification process, or learning days, please contact Richard.Weaver@citizensuk.org.
