Students from the latest session of the community development course Activate are celebrating following their graduation from the course.

Delivered by Glasgow University, the course covers topics such as anti-discriminatory practice, local and global issues, power, community investigations and standards for community development. The ten participants started their studies last November (2023) and came from a wide range of community organisations including ng homes and ng2 staff, The Courtyard Pantry, Pinkston Watersports and Young People’s Futures.

The students received deserved congratulations from their tutor following the final class in early February and will receive their awards at a ceremony at Glasgow University at a future date.

Activate Tutor Janette Devlin said: “This course has been filled with great discussion, debate, learning, some fun, and good food. [...] It was a terrific blend of both wisdom and fresh perspectives that each of the participants brought to the session every week and helped create a truly enriching learning experience for them all.”

Catherine Rossine, ng homes Chair, said: “The Activate course is a wonderful opportunity to think about community development from new perspectives and I am delighted to congratulate these students on their achievements.

"It is wonderful to see these students make new connections through Activate. I would strongly encourage anyone who is interested in taking part or learning more (about Activate) to get in touch and be part of the next session.”

Anyone interested in taking part in the upcoming session should contact Paula Mailey, Community Development Team Leader on 0141 560 6000 or email pmailey@nghomes.net
