Advanced Apprenticeship in Campaigning
How much more effective would your organisation be at highlighting injustices and bringing about change if it had someone with up to date campaigning skills in the team?
This is a hugely significant time for campaigning in charities as more people are expected to have a say in public services and how their neighbourhoods are run. Charities are at the very forefront of supporting people to do this effectively so that they can make a real difference to their local communities. It’s never been more critical for charities to have people with practical campaigning skills in the team.
The Advanced Level Apprenticeship in Campaigning has been developed by Skills – Third Sector, the organisation working to make sure that charities and social enterprises have the right people with the right skills, in collaboration with sector professionals.
This Advanced level Apprenticeship (the equivalent to 3 A-levels) will develop the skills, knowledge and understanding in key areas that campaigners need to be good at including:
- prioritising issues on which to campaign;
- understanding campaign strategies;
- developing clear messages and communications channels;
- conducting research;
- developing workplans;
- and monitoring and evaluating campaigns.
