Information for community centres, learning providers and employers interested in running a Speaking Up course in their community.
Tailored courses offering empowerment to everybody
Speaking Up is a progressive learning programme starting with workshops on confidence-building, communications skills and an awareness of local democracy, eventually progressing to an NOCN-accredited Level 3 qualification (equivalent to an A-Level).
Who can host a Speaking Up course?
Any organisation with an interest in benefiting its staff or community can host and run a Speaking Up course. Based on the wide-reaching success of this range of accredited courses among local community groups, Exeter CVS is now able to provide this acclaimed adult learning programme as a supported delivery package to educational organisations, community centres and public/private sector businesses nationwide.
