In October, 2015 EWMI ACCESS launched its 5-month certified training program for current and future CSO leaders in Management of Non-profit Organizations. The course is delivered by the EWMI Implementing partner, the Center for Training and Consultancy (CTC).
The program strives to turn Georgian CSOs into mission-driven and well-run actors in their focus areas. The course is the first attempt to cover almost all aspects of NGO and project management – defining the core concepts and values of a non-governmental organization, value-based organizational strategic planning, project cycle management, innovative fundraising and sustainability, PR and social marketing, financial management, leading and managing people, carrying out advocacy campaigns, etc.
The course consists of seven modules, out of which three are mandatory and four optional. In order to get a certificate, participants have to attend at least three mandatory and two optional modules. The studies will combine theoretical work and skills-building exercises on examples of the projects implemented by participants and the organizations they represent. Currently 23 NGO leaders from Tbilisi and regions of Georgia (Dusheti, Gori, Telavi and Rustavi) are attending the sessions.
The program is fully funded by EWMI ACCESS and is free for the participants.
On February 3, 2016 the Center for Training and Consultancy (CTC) announced opening for the second round of the training course. The course will start in March, 2016 and last until October, 2016 (with 2-month brake during the summer). Participants will be selected through an open competition. Interested individuals should send the filled out application form to firstname.lastname@example.org before February 25, 2016.
