COURSE OUTCOMES

This practical self-study course will teach you how to:

  • Design a project your donors will support
  • Plan, draft and edit a persuasive proposal

Through downloadable course videos, practical exercises and extra materials you will learn how to:

  • Identify a project your donors will support
  • Design a project using Logical Framework Approach
  • Plan your proposal in a logical, persuasive way
  • Communicate clearly and in a way that keeps your readers interested and alert

The course addresses the challenges faced by development professionals in project planning and proposal writing in a way that allows for maximum practical work. While you will get all the theory you need, you will learn the steps and tools in a way that you can apply time after time after the course is over so that:

  • You will always know what to do each time you have to develop a proposal
  • Your proposals will be well-organised, clear and persuasive - contributing to better relations with donors and, more importantly, increased donor support

HOW IT WORKS

As soon as you sign up you get immediate, lifetime access to all the course materials - downloadable course videos, worksheets and extra materials. As a self-paced course, you work through a series of video presentations on various aspects of Reporting Skills and Professional Writing at your own pace.

The first half of the course examines the key skills of Professional Writing, while in the second part we move onto the process of project planning - working step-by-step through the Logical Framework Approach - before moving onto planning, drafting and editing the proposal.

This is a practical course. At various points you will invited to stop the video and complete different tasks. You will find the worksheets for these inside the course. Please do stop and do the tasks when asked.

All of the videos can be downloaded for off-line study / reference, as can everything else - PDF slides, worksheets and reference materials.

At the end of the course there is a test to measure how successfully you have learned the skills before you are issued with your certificate.

PERSONAL FEEDBACK (OPTIONAL)

While you will find the course clear and complete, many people benefit from one-to-one feedback and guidance. The insights gained from just one session can make a massive difference to your writing - and, consequently, the effectiveness of your reports and proposals.

If you opt for this, you will be invited to send a short proposal for personal, one-to-one feedback on your strengths and areas for improvement. You will receive your feedback as a video file for future reference.
