Call for Applications: Communication Skills and Strategies Course for CSOs in West Africa
Deadline for applications: Friday June 28, 2013.
WACSI is organising a course on Communication Skills and Strategies for civil society actors in West Africa. The Institute has identified the importance of effective communication in fostering interpersonal interactions and organisational communication to promote organisational gains. Driven by this dire need, the Institute has developed this specialised course to improve the communication skills of civil society actors.
This course will balance both theoretical and practical skills required for good communication. This is to ensure that participants emerge as better communicators to boost the portfolio of their respective organizations. The course will equip participants with poignant skills in fundraising communication, developing press kits, influencing public policy, formulating a strategic communication plan, organizational branding, fruitful negotiation skills and developing a good relationship with the media.
This course costs GHs 600.00 (excluding bank charges, transportation and accommodation while in Ghana) and will hold from 29 - 31 July, 2013 at the WACSI Training Centre in Accra. The cost will cover course materials, a training certificate, lunch and coffee/tea breaks.
Applications from prospective participants are currently being accepted until Friday 28 June, and potential participants are expected to pay the above contribution fee on or before Monday July 15, 2013. Applicants will be selected on a first come first serve basis.
