LMETB Community Development Course

Hi all

Just a reminder of the upcoming QQI (FETAC) Level 5 Community Development programme that is beginning with LMETB later this month. There are a few places left on this programme and I would ask you to encourage anyone in your organisation or working within the community/with your organisation to consider the programme. The cost for the entire programme is only €150. There is no guarantee that the programme will run again so this is a one off chance to partake in this exciting course.  Attached is the  presentation given at the recent information evening but I would be happy to answer any further questions should you have them.

Kind Regards
