Course summary

**About This Course**This four year course offers career-focused professional training, delivered by people with first hand development experience, in a department at the cutting edge of development policy and practice. The aim is to equip you with the practical skills and knowledge you need to build a successful career that will help you achieve your priorities and your ambitions, whether that be running a grassroots campaign or a humanitarian response and whether that be in the private, government or non-profit sectors. Beyond the core teaching, the course will offer options to develop regional or thematic areas of expertise in DEV’s traditional areas of strength. And in addition to developing practical skills, it will also help build critical expertise and an awareness of development’s challenges that is central to all the courses we provide. **Overview**This course is about preparing you to achieve your goals in international development.In it, you will be grounded in the management techniques and concepts needed to work effectively in the modern development sector. For example, you will learn what it takes to run an advocacy campaign, deliver a health services project, or manage a small charity or an evaluation team. You will demonstrate familiarity with and the ability to use key planning, management, monitoring, evaluation and communication tools. The course will give you the opportunities to develop the skills and techniques you have learned in a real life setting through our development work placement module. Not only will this contextualize and ground what you have learned, it will also boost your employability and help you reflect on your own positioning within the sector. Development as a sector is characterized by power relations and by often politically contested processes of change. Beyond the practical skills and experience, the course is also about equipping you with the critical skills needed to navigate the development sector. What does this mean for you? How should you position yourself? Lastly, you will be equipped a strong grounding in the skills of research and analysis, including the ability to look critically at development interventions, looking beyond the claims made to understand the power dynamics on which development is based. **Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
