A ‘Framework for Learning’ complied by the Scottish Community Development Center (SCDC) in 2007. For making community engagement work it is crucial to nurture the core competences of professional practice in order to create and sustain participatory practices.
This framework of competences is designed to enable the
planning of learning in community engagement. The framework provides a statement of the purpose, elements and competences for community engagement practice that should enable training providers to develop their own curricula to address
the needs of practitioners operating in different settings and at different levels. It is not a single curriculum because the variety of needs and priorities requires customised approaches.
