CHCCD615A - Develop and implement community development strategies

CHCCD615A - Develop and implement community development strategies Vision CollegesThere is a saying the nothing is as certain as change, this is so true of every aspect of life.   From the time we are born to the moment we expire we are in a flux of change, as it is with fashion so it is with every physical entity, every building, every business, every church.  Education, its methods and processes changes and develops as does everything around us.  Indeed if we do not change -- we die as does everything around us.

Any organisation that seeks to continue must change in order to address the changing issues of community life.  That change has to be managed to be effective, it has to be developed and implimented with a view to the many different elements of society around it in an attempt to attract as many, if not all, of those it comes into contact with and the the authorities and interest groups that impact upon it daily.

This subject will assist us to gain the skills we need to deal  with development and implimentation of the church or any community group as it seeks to reach the community.
