Credit Union Development Educator Programmes

What Is The Reason For The Development Educator Programmes?

It has long been recognised that the Development Educator course with its total immersion in credit union history, philosophy, corporate governance and operational activity over an intense five day period (or longer) imparts concepts, develops new and latent skills in all who attend; inspiring them to become more imbued with practical cooperation and the value of their place in social economy and impact on society. 

If applicants have a Development Educator programme in their own country/territory, they might have to be a graduate of it before applying to be accepted on another course by its Course Directors.
