Walsall College is a key partner in the EUGANGS project – a transnational project to create a qualification specifically for professionals and communities dealing with gangs and resulting criminality. The programme covers: Interpersonal communication, Safe working, Policy, Social psychology, Social factors.
Find out more about the project at our workshop event: Desistance or enforcement
with community and agency partners in Walsall and the Black Country grounds the course in issues relevant to our local contexts.
The Train the Trainer programme
has ensured the course is delivered by tutors experienced in youth work, local projects and working with gangs.
We are now piloting the EUGANGS course, which leads to the City and Guilds Level 3 Certificate in Community Safety, and it is proving a hit with communities and professionals alike as it helps people make connections between their experiences and overarching theory, and with each other:
‘There were sessions that opened my eyes … particularly to the science behind how people think and how this plays a part in the gangs problem. I’m quite experienced and yet found this aspect enlightening.’
‘I have gained knowledge from the course and also the beneficial experiences of colleagues’
