Generations Working Together in partnership with the University of Granada is delighted to be able to offer another opportunity to participate on this accredited on-line course. Please note the course has undergone a few tweaks including a change in the title from ‘Certificate’ to ‘Diploma’ and the accredited body will now be the University of Granada’s International School of Postgraduate Studies. Content however remains the same.

Due to a technical issue the course has been pushed back by one week and will now commence on Tuesday 3rd November finishing on the 21st December 2020.

The course is aimed at anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of intergenerational work, its purpose, impact and practical application to enable them to apply this within their own work. Students can complete their studies at times which are suitable to them as long as this falls between the start and finish date.

This can include occupational therapists, nursery/playgroup staff, primary and secondary teachers, classroom assistants, community learning & development and social care professionals, social workers, sociologists, psychologists, leisure & physical activity professionals, employment advisors, doctors, nurses and healthcare workers, librarians and third sector professionals of all backgrounds, amongst many others.

  • “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.

  • “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.”
