QQI Level 5 Major Award in Community Development

The Community Development programme covers a range of level 5 modules: 

  • Understanding Community Development 
  • Community Development Practice 
  • Working with Groups 
  • Communications 
  • Personal Effectiveness 
  • Social Studies 
  • Personal and Professional Development 
  • Community Arts in Context and Practice 

All participants are required to complete each of the modules which then make up a QQI Level 5 Major Award in Community Development

This course has been designed to introduce students to the theory and practice of Community Development and will enable participants to develop leadership skills and an understanding of working in a multicultural society, ensuring equality and diversity in the community sector.

The small class size will give participants the opportunity to gain a PLC qualification in a fully supported, structured learning environment. This programme is suited to individuals that have completed the Leaving Certificate, Leaving Certificate Applied or have a QQI Major Award at Level 4. 

Previous participants on the course have progressed on to further education and to Third Level.
