  • “I found this course easy to follow and navigate. Resources and tasks were in a logical order and extremely easy to access, without being too heavily reading based. The assignments and activities were the perfect balance of both open to interpretation with enough guidance to know you were on the right track. This enabled me to reflect on my own practice and complete tasks in the context of the work I am currently involved with. The forums and contact with other students was invaluable. The network of other industry professionals was of benefit to bounce ideas and share problem solving etc. I would have no hesitation in recommending this course to a colleague or fellow intergenerational professional.”
  • “The course has focused my intergenerational practice and has given me confidence when engaging with others on how to deliver an intergenerational project relaying some of the do’s and don’ts for success.”
  • “I feel the course has given me the skills to be more confident when evaluating and has made me think more of what the aims and objectives of the projects are and how best to achieve them. It has given me more encouragement to set up new projects and inspire others in the way I have been inspired.”
  • “I really enjoyed undertaking this course and am very grateful for all the feedback that has been given throughout. The enthusiasm of the tutors for the course has been very clear from the outset and the encouragement they have given to students is one of the strengths of the course.”

The course will run over a 8 week period, starting on Monday 27th September 2021 and finishing on Sunday 21st November 2021. The course will consist of three on-line modules and will take approximately 75 hours to complete. Each student will receive support from a named tutor online.
