Cinnamon Leadership Training is a national programme of training for church-based volunteers involved in social action projects and for those currently running or wishing to run a Cinnamon Recognised Project or other social action project, in their community.
The training is not for ‘experts’, neither is it limited to church leaders but is open to anyone, from social activists to community leaders and to those interested in developing the capacity and skills needed to lead more effectively.
The four modules are:
- Leading Confidently
- Promotions & Partnerships
- Fundraising & Evaluation
What happens in the Training?
The day is run by professional trainers, each with a breadth of training experience. The material is designed with a variety of learning preferences in mind. As well as short ‘up front’ teaching slots, learners will reflect on powerful video clips, engage in stimulating group discussion and pause for personal reflection. We are convinced that this unique format will maximise group learning, mutual encouragement and up-skilling, and will inspire people to grow and lead more effectively.
