‘Getting to know your institutions’

OCN Accredited Training Course open for registration

Derry City and Strabane District Council would like to inform you about an upcoming Good Relations course, which takes place over 6 weeks during February and March 2018.  The course aims to make people more aware of institutions such as the Orange Order, GAA, Churches, etc.  It will involve a mystery tour of visits to these intuitions in the Council area to find out about the history and importance of these institutions to their patrons. The course comes with the option of OCN Level II accreditation.

Participants will get a chance to visit the premises of the institutions to take them physically into a space that they may not have been in before and it will give the institutions a chance to give different perceptions of their organisations and get rid of some myths surrounding them.  Participants will not know in advance which institution that they are visiting each week to make sure that people are open minded about the course and not self selecting. 

Participants have to be able to attend all sessions which will be held on Monday evenings from the 5th February right through to 12th March 2018.  Transport will be provided each week to get people to the institutions.

Applications will be accepted on a 'first come first served' basis.
Please contact Amanda Biega on 028 7125 3253 to access a registration form.
All registration forms must be returned to her no later than Wednesday 31st January 2018.
