"Problem Solving: Translating Creativity and Analysis into Practical Solutions to Service Challenges for Community and Voluntary Organisations" - Level 8

The Disability Federation of Ireland (DFI), the University of Limerick (UL) and Johnson & Johnson (J&J), through their joint initiative SOLA, are now open for registration to their "Problem Solving for C&V Organisations" Course.

SOLA: "The Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Quality in the Community and Voluntary Sector is committed to building sustainable communities of practice and service provision with appropriate governance and sustainable quality systems within the changing social, economic and political context in Ireland”. In delivering on this commitment SOLA has developed this Level 8 "Problem Solving" module.

For whom - The UL accredited module is aimed at those within the community & voluntary sector with a responsibility for governing, delivering service, coordinating activities, or with a role in the administration and management of the organisation.

Organisation Activity - This course provides learners with an opportunity to practice the skills that are needed to participate in finding solutions to the issues that concern them. This helps to develop important strategic objectives for a sustainable future by using structured experiential and theory-based methods. It also integrates the critical-to-success skills of problem clarification, analysis, correction and permanent solution development so that students can take action with confidence and determination.

Applications are now being accepted for this course which will be run over five Saturdays from 4th February to 8th April (inclusive) 2017. The course will be delivered at the University of Limerick campus. Application and further details are available on: http://www.ul.ie/cpe/node/1491
