What is Recognition

Recogntion is Validation of Practice

Recognition is a mentor supported process which validates people's learning from reflecting on their practice (paid or unpaid). Recognition is based on the core values of community development and the ESB criteria for community development work (incorporating the 2023 UK CD NOS, the IACD international Standards for Community Development and the UN sustainability goals) which set out the skills and knowledge required to be an effective CD practitioner.

ESB works in partnership with organisations to design a suitable programme to meet their specific requirements and the funding / resources available. ESB can train mentors as well as providing to assessors.
