The Certificate in Community Development is a short course designed to explore the structure and practice of community development and spirit of volunteerism around the world.  Participants will be engaged in a critical analysis of different approaches to community development, their historical development and underlying assumptions. They shall gain an understanding of the structural and practical issues that promote or detract from the goal of community empowerment.
The programme aims to train students that will go on to make reckonable contributions towards achieving community development agenda – both locally and internationally.

This Certificate Programme is originally intended for delivery to penultimate year students across all KWASU undergraduate programmes.
Unlike the previous session, the Certificate in Community Development shall be opened to final-year students in the first semester and penultimate-year students in the second semester of the current Academic Session (i.e. 2015/2016)
After this session, 2015/2016, eligibility for the Programme shall revert to penultimate-year students only, while final-year students will only be considered on special circumstances.
NOTE: Student must have recorded a 75% attendance before he/she can earn the certificate.

Candidates who fulfill the specified eligibility criteria are to enroll at the beginning of session or any other period announced by KWASU-CCD. This shall be done by duly completing a registration form and paying the appropriate fees through the KWASU Fee Payment System. Prospective participants shall be allowed to enroll on a total of four courses comprising of:
a.    Two core community development courses, and
