Sneinton Training

Friday 5th June marked the end of our first accredited training programme or VTP (Volunteer Training Programme).  13 residents living or working in Sneinton have been completing a level 3 course in the Foundations of Community Organising that covered listening and engagement skills, understanding power and barriers and the history of community development.  The participant have done great over the last 6 months and the possibilities from having 13 more qualified Community Organisers in the area are endless.

To mark the end of the VTP we invited the trainees to attend a Mass Meet Up of Community Organisers from all over the country
