ZOOM MEETINGS & OFFLINE STUDY
22 FEBRUARY - 22 MARCH 2023
MAXIMUM NO. OF PARTICIPANTS: 10
This practical course will teach you how to:
- Design a project your donors will support
- Plan, draft and edit a persuasive proposal
Through a combination of coached, live sessions on Zoom
and self-study (downloadable course videos, worksheets 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
LIVE SESSIONS & OFF-LINE STUDY
This is combination of live meetings conducted using ZOOM and off-line self study.
As soon as you sign up you get immediate, lifetime access
to all the course materials - downloadable course videos, worksheets
and extra materials.
There are five weekly meetings over the course period, to give you enough time to apply the learning to your own project concept while still managing your regular work. Each Wednesday, starting from February 22, we meet live at 10:30 UTC for around 60 minutes to review / preview and deal with questions. Between meetings you work through the materials and tasks (videos and exercises) and share work in progress. You can see current UTC time here.
PERSONAL WORK REVIEW

wish I had taken this training sooner, as I have a made a lot of errors
in the past in writing proposals. But now - whether in writing a
sentence, a report or a proposal - I have a magic skill!"
