Intergenerational online modules

We know how difficult it can be for practitioners developing intergenerational programmes within their own work to find time to update and build on their knowledge. Yet, it is so important to do this to ensure that your understanding of intergenerational practice is current and of good quality, so that when you bring generations together you are making the most of these wonderful opportunities. Good quality intergenerational programmes bring so many benefits, not just to the participants, but also to supporting staff and/or volunteers, the workplace and the community.

That’s why we have developed a range of short online learning modules, which can be accessed virtually at times to suit yourself. Each module takes around 2.5-3.5 hours and has a specific intergenerational focus. The learning modules are accredited by CPD Standards Office and on completion of a module, you will be awarded a digital badge in recognition of your learning.

The online course takes place through a Moodle platform, which becomes a virtual space in which to share the learning process with the tutors and the other participants. The platform provides everything you'll need for your training:

  • Learning materials: a wide range of learning and support materials which can be accessed through the platform
  • Complementary learning resources (such as videos, links to materials of interest, case studies, etc).
  • A quiz to check your own learning and understanding
  • A useful further resources and information section so that you can access additional information should you wish to
  • Access to a tutor through the online forum if you have any questions

The course has been designed for you to complete by yourself, rather than as part of a group as part of a flexible learning package, designed to allow you to decide where, when and at what rhythm you want to study. It’s clear structure and guidelines are there to make sure you know what you're doing and are able to make the most of your learning.

Depending upon the GWT membership that you hold, a small fee of between £5 to £20 will apply for each module.
