Prospect Community invites you to take part in a focus group for community development in Northern Ireland, as part of the consultation on the review of the Community Development National Occupational Standards (2015).
The Community Development Standards clearly define the purpose of community development, the underpinning values and the key areas of practice. They also specify the standards of performance expected of individuals in the workplace, together with the knowledge and understanding required for community work roles.
NOS are used for a variety of purposes including developing job descriptions and person specifications for CD roles, structuring support and supervision, planning and designing training and development, qualifications design (inc. CD degree programmes), career planning and progression, strategic and programme planning within organisations.
The Community Learning and Development Standards Council Scotland (CLDSC) has been granted a contract to carry out a review of the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Community Development across the United Kingdom and will be working with a range of national and local organisations from Scotland, England, Northern Ireland and Wales.
