Women in Leadership

WRDA are delighted to be offering another Women in Leadership course, over Zoom. Funded by Belfast City Council’s Capacity Building Programme, the course will run for four weeks (Thursday mornings) from 5th October and aims to deliver practical training for women to increase their confidence, self-esteem and leadership skills.

Deirdre Quinn, the WRDA course co-ordinator, acknowledges that last year was very difficult for so many people but it also provided a period where many assessed their lives and wanted to make a change. Women in Leadership is all about giving women the confidence to challenge themselves and use their skills to make a meaningful difference to their own lives and their communities. It will help them by increasing confidence and sense of empowerment and may provide a bridge into further education, training or employment.”

The OCN Level 3 endorsed course is practical and experience-based rather than academic, focusing on existing skills and how to use them to create positive change.
The training content will be informed by WRDA’s work on barriers faced by women accessing adult education and will include approaches designed to address these.

The first session starts Thursday 7th October, 10.00 am -12.30 for four weeks.
Participants should live in the greater Belfast area. Anyone interested, please email deirdre.quinn@wrda.net with a paragraph detailing why you would like to take part.
