International Certificate in Intergenerational Practice (ICIP)

“I have been really impressed by the resources pulled together to support learning on this course, both written and video. I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and have come to the end feeling more confident in my understanding of and ability to apply intergenerational principles and practice and to engage with others to design, develop and deliver concrete, ongoing intergenerational happenings.” (Student, IDIL 2, 2021)

Please note: this course has had a slight change in title moving from the 'International Diploma in Intergenerational Learning' to the 'International Certificate in Intergenerational Practice' (ICIP). This is due to the course moving over from the University of Granada platfrom to sit within GWT's  new moodle platform. The course however remains the exact same and will be accredited by the Continued Professional Development Standards Office (CPD) along with a certificate from GWT.
