Higher Education: Community Governance

Developing people, improving organisations, strengthening communities

Stronger through Study
Community Governance is an exciting higher education programme of study at levels 4 and 5 of the National Qualifications Framework. It is a distance learning course with residential study days that help you get to know fellow students and the teaching team.

Community Governance is the way in which people and organisations work together and independently, making decisions for the benefit of a local community.

You can study for a qualification awarded by the University of Gloucestershire leading to either:

•    A Certificate of Higher Education in Community Governance: Local Council Management (Level 4)
•    A Foundation Degree in Community Governance (Level 5)

Or you can take one or two modules as Continuing Professional Development or as a taster of higher education study.  These modules do not carry academic credit awarded by the University of Gloucestershire.

Who is the course for?
The Community Governance course is useful for anyone working in a local community including council officers, councillors and advisors interested in how that community ticks and aiming for a deeper knowledge and understanding of your work.

"I would like to thank the tutors on the Community Governance course for their patience, constructive criticism, support, encouragement and much more. You have been brilliant in allowing me to grow, reflect on my role as parish clerk, gain in confidence and succeed. This has been an entirely positive experience of higher education." Belina Boyer, clerk to Clipstone Parish Council and Bleasby Parish Council.
Community Governance is part of the National Training Strategy and is sponsored by Came & Company Local Council Insurance:
