PROACT (Professional Development & Actions in Civil Society)

CfED are working with a specialist European Development Agency called Oake who have secured European Transnational resources from a French lead partner (project language is English) to pilot business diagnostic models and tools with small and medium sized 3rd sector groups and civil society organisations across the city of Wolverhampton and Dudley.

A specialist course is being constructed and that will offer bespoke targeted support for volunteer or paid staff and volunteer board members in order to test out some innovatory practices being evolved within the project. The overall aim of the project is to develop and support the acquisitions of knowledge and key competences at work for 3rd sector workers, volunteers and managers in order to better manage and to strengthen their organisation. Funded by the E.U and through Awards for All the pilot programme will build on ideas and proposals from the results of a series of surveys that were conducted during the spring and summer of 2013.

The pilot in testing PROACT will absorb some of the needs highlighted with a sample group of fifteen targeted volunteers: part of the individual and collective organisational capacity building will be that these pioneer volunteers will act as mentors for others within and recruited for their organisations.

12 training days will be organised and training sessions will cover themes such as:

  • The life cycle of an organisation
  • Bid Writing / Fund Raising
  • Presentational skills
  • Communication strategy
  • Organisational development and many more
