Who is it for?

Our international projects span the globe, from mainland Europe to Malawi in the heart of Africa. With over 15 years’ experience in international co-operative development, our team will equip your staff with the knowledge and understanding of what it takes to build sustainable communities and transform lives across the world.

What will participants learn?

As an introductory course, they’ll be immersed in the world of international co-operative development right from the start, illustrated using real life case studies. They’ll also learn about:

  • The diversity and reach of the global co-operative movement and how co-ops have transformed the lives of individuals across the world
  • Some of the similarities and differences in how co-ops work in the UK and internationally, and what opportunities and challenges this poses
  • The “co-operative difference” in international development and the crucial role that education plays within this

How will participants learn?

Our workshops aren’t just about watching a presentation and taking notes. They’re interactive and dynamic, with all our team taking an active role in ensuring your team get the best experience you can. On this course there will be:

  • Group activities to encourage the sharing of ideas about international co-operative development
  • Case studies for learners to review, so they have a deeper understanding of the impact co-operatives have in changing people’s lives
  • Opportunities to interact and participate in discussions
