Would you and your colleagues like to be recognised for your skills in community engagement and undertake valuable CDP training?
PAS (www.pas.org.uk) is running a training workshop in Aberdeen on Thursday 23 March (5.30-9.00pm)
SP=EED® (Successful Planning = Effective Engagement and Delivery) is PAS’s practical guide to better engagement in planning and is mentioned in Scottish Government guidance.
The current Scottish Government consultation on reform of the planning system puts increased focus on improving and front-loading community engagement in both spatial planning and community planning.
SP=EED Verification is a two-part programme. Part 1 is an interactive workshop and Part 2 is a written reflective-learning assessment based on an engagement process you have been involved in. Follow this link to the PAS website for full details: www.pas.org.uk/speed.
Previous participants have come from a wide range of backgrounds including third sector organisations and community groups.
Feedback from previous participants:
“Completing SP=EED Verification was really useful to enhancing the quality of my community engagement work with communities on planning issues. The training provided lots of fresh ideas and a good explanation of the SP=EED process. The materials provided were very comprehensive and invaluable to completing my project.”
“Very good facilitation using a range of different methods. The programme was well thought out and flowed well, it will be good to get this accreditation.”
Cost: The cost of SP=EED Verification (including the workshop, assessment process and verification) is £250. We also offer a package on an organisational basis.
