We offer a number of different courses. Most of these courses are only run as in-house courses, whereas two of our courses are also run as public courses.
Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning
Writing for Development
Please note these two courses can also be offered as an in-house variant.
The Essential Practice of Community Development
Community Leadership Development
Facilitating Organisational Development
Course fees for public courses
For public courses in South Africa, we charge R 6,000. For public courses elsewhere in Africa, we charge USD 800. The course fees cover the workshop tuition, learning materials, lunches and teas. Travel, all other meals and accommodation are the responsibility of the participants.
Course fees for in-house courses
For in-house courses we usually charge per facilitator-days rather than per participant at a rate of R5 500 per facilitator per day, including preparation. Groups larger than 12-16 (depending on the course) usually require two facilitators. This is all negotiable for smaller organisations.
For course materials, which includes a resource manual, we charge R100 per participant.
Our approach to courses
Whilst we do provide important and stimulating input, all of our courses are highly participative, engaging the participants' own experiences and challenging them to develop, ask and to answer their own questions. This inside-out approach engages not only the world of ideas but approaches the less-visible emotional and intentional dynamics to enable participants to identify their own will to work and any resistances that are holding them back. We catalyse cross-learning between participants. This generates a horizontal learning dynamic especially fruitful for teams of practitioners wanting to rethink and renew the way they work together. Every course leads back into action to ensure that participants are able to apply their learning to their real-world practice.
Venues & accommodation
The courses are held in or near to inexpensive accommodation. Participants will have to book and pay for this themselves. Please email us if you would like contact information.
The courses in Cape Town will be held at the CDRA Centre, 52/54 Francis Street, Woodstock.
The CDRA centre is available as a venue at reasonable cost for in-house courses. See Hire CDRA for workshops
