The aim of the course is to support participants to develop the skills and confidence to engage in listening in the context of community organising, either with family and friends or in the community.
During this course you will:
- gain a deeper understanding of the importance of listening in the context of community organising.
- begin to develop the skills and self-awareness required for listening
- understand how the reflection process can be used to improve listening practice
- prepare participants for the practicalities of listening in a community
- consider next steps in listening
The listening exercise made me reflect on how I have been listening to others and sometimes not hearing them.
This course is run by Community Organisers and facilitated by the Starting Point Community Learning Partnership Social Action Hub.
The course will be held in our upstairs training room in Woodley. Lift available.
Free parking and good access route by train and bus.
Lunch will be provided. There will be vegan options available but if you have any dietary requirements please get in touch.
The course lasts for 6 hours. Like all of our training, it is inspiring and interactive. It is designed so that everybody can take part, share their ideas and experiences and practice their skills.
