Be. Community Leadership Programme
The purpose of the ‘Be. Community Leadership Programme (formerly the Community Leadership Academy)’ is to provide a suite of training and personal development opportunities at low or no cost to people who give their own time to support their communities. The Academy will have the dual benefit of allowing individuals to develop their personal skill sets (with associated benefits for employment and the local economy), whilst also bringing about benefits for the wider community by enhancing the quality of community leadership.
The funding will be used to:
- employ a community training manager,
- subsidise access to existing community training and development where cost has been identified as a barrier to participation, and
- commission learning and development where there is a proven need but no existing provision.
The project was approved by the LAG on 19th January 2017. It started in April 2017 and will run for three years until April 2020.
Total cost of the project is £162,500 (RDP amount: £130,000).
