Development Education

Development Education aims to raise awareness and develop understanding of how global issues affect the daily lives of people, community and civic society and encourages everyone to become ‘actors’ in changing society for good.

ADRA-UK works with schools, higher educational institutions, youth groups as well as faith-based organisations to deliver programmes that provide not only vital data, but will empower everyone to consider global issues and the part they can can play in making the world a better place.

Our Development Education department has created diverse training packages including offering courses to MSc Midwifery students from the University of Hertfordshire to developing specialist community awards for youth groups and also delivering the key modules for the Year in Service and Mission at Newbold College, in Berkshire.
