organisations in the SADC region (Angola, Democratic Republic of

Developed together with international and regional experts, seven

Leadership and management for change

This course is about leading and managing for change. It aims to help
you, a manager or a leader in an organisation involved in the strug-
gle for justice, with the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary
to help you to do your work effectively and ethically. Because if you
don't do you work effectively and ethically, your struggle will be in

Fundraising and resource mobilization

Fundraising and resource mobilisation maybe a high priority on your
list. But in the kind of context you are operating in, the prospects
of raising sufficient funds might not be so good. In order to be ef-
fective - in order to bring about equity and justice - you need to be
able to effectively fundraise and mobilise your resources, and effect
change. And yet many of you are not able to do this. That's what this
course is for.

The courses involve distance learning from interactive materials on
CD-ROM with support from a course tutor via e-mail. In addition there
will be a workshop in the region and assignments and one major pro-

Each course will comprise three phases:

Phase One:
You will be supplied with interactive learning materials on CD-ROM to
use at home or at your workplace. You will be supported via email by
a course tutor. You will be required to complete a series of assign-
ments over a period of approximately eight weeks.

Phase Two:
This will involve an intensive workshop in southern Africa lasting
for about 5 days depending on the course you are registered for. The
workshop is compulsory.

Phase Three:
This phase will last about eight weeks and will involve you carrying
out an assignment within your organisation. You will be supported via
email by a course tutor and submit your work for assessment.

Those successfully completing this exercise will be awarded with a
Certificate of Completion from the University of Oxford.

This project is supported by the European Union, the British Depart-
ment for International Development, and the Canadian International
Development Research Centre. Partial funding is available to cover
fees, travel and accommodation for up to 15 persons per course from
within the SADC region. Successful applicants would be expected to
pay a registration fee of US$ 250. On completion of the course, a
voucher of US$ 100 will be issued to support another member of the
organisation to register for a course.
