Our unique introductory course has been completely revised to reflect the latest thinking and practice in international development. This course quickly brings you up to speed with the most important global issues and emerging debates.
Using a mix of real-life examples, group discussion and practical activities, you will learn about the historical context to development work, the global balance of power and the major actors, as well as the current approaches to development and what makes for successful development work.
Suitable for people who are new to international development, thinking of moving into the sector or wanting to gain a greater understanding of the "bigger picture". It is also appropriate for those wanting to refresh their knowledge of the theory and practice of development work.
What you will learn
This course will be delivered entirely online, through facilitated live sessions (using Zoom) as well as individual and group activities on the Bond learning platform. We work hard to make sure you get the same level of interaction and facilitator support as you would in our training room. You’ll work in breakout rooms, use case studies and take part in group activities – all online.
Three half-day live online sessions plus individual and group work in the afternoons, between sessions.
Total time commitment over the period of the course is 15 hours:
