About this course

This postgraduate certificate enables students to consider how we can use enterprise to improve communities and the lives of their members.

The course is run in partnership with practitioner organisation, The Action for RE:generate Trust, and looks at the development and practice of community organising and community engagement in a changing political context. It is particularly concerned with using academic knowledge to inform professional practice for those working in community engagement, whether in the public or voluntary sectors. We can organise additional practice placements if you feel that your experience is limited.

Although it is only available to those working in the UK, the course maintains a strong international perspective and draws from community-based work around the world. This helps you to appreciate the cultural and political context of community, and to learn different professional techniques in the process.

At Brighton, we have made a strong commitment to community engagement through our strategic plan, widening participation policy and the internationally renowned Community University Partnership Programme (Cupp).
