Creative Community Leadership Training

Free online training in creative community leadership for people across Derbyshire .  

The Eden Project Communities virtual Community Camp is an immersive learning experience, offering a mix of practical activities, workshop sessions and networking opportunities for people from across the UK; who are interested in becoming community leaders, or improve their existing skill set in this area. The Community Camp will be taking place online throughout March, consisting of two sessions per week.  

Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Community Fund, the virtual Community Camp is completely FREE to attend for volunteers! However, due to funding restrictions applications from paid professionals working within this area cannot be accepted. 

Community Camp can be for lots of different types of people, those who: 

  • Want to start a community project - or are already doing something and want to take the next step! 
  • Are just starting out on their journey, or those who are more experienced but keen to learn from and share with others 
  • Were involved with mutual aid groups or helping those in their community during Covid-19 and are interested in staying active 
  • Who find that they have a little more time to get involved in their community now due to a change with their education or employment and others who dipped their toe into the community space during Covid-19 and are keen to do more! 

The first Virtual Camp in 2020 was a huge success!   99% of the 2020 participants rated the programme either excellent or good overall, and 97% would recommend Virtual Community Camp to others.  

As part of the Virtual Community Camp, participants can also receive a certificate confirming completion of a Prospect Awards Endorsed Programme in Creative Community Leadership.  This is integrated into the programme of sessions and does not require additional time, coursework or assessment.  All you need to do is commit to taking part in all the sessions and the network building. 

Applications must be submitted via the online form by Sunday 21 February.
