Better Community Engagement

SCDC were involved in delivery of this national programme as a sub-contractor to Linked Work & Training Trust.  The programme was based on the Better Community Engagement Framework (Learning Connections, Communities Scotland, 2007) which sets out a framework of competences designed to enable the planning of learning in community engagement and was developed to build the capacity of practitioners in community engagement.  To access the framework, please click here.

It also complements existing frameworks and resources such as the National Standards for Community Engagement (Communities Scotland, 2005) and the Learning in Regeneration Skills Pack (Scottish Centre for Regeneration, Communities Scotland, 2005).

The aims of the Better Community Engagement programme were to:

  • establish one or more working models of effective learning for community engagement across Scotland
  • evidence how structured learning could impact or improve community engagement practice
  • provide an evidence base for future development of learning for community engagemen

More information about the programme is available on the Scottish Government Website, which also contains resources and materials produced through the various strands of the programme.
