What We Do


LYCS Development Education provides the following services.

Training for Community Workers

We provide free thematic training events for community workers and those who work with adults in the community sector. At the moment, and until early March, we will mainly be focusing on the issues of waste, globalisation and inequality and food issues.

Courses and Events for residents and activists in the north east inner city of Dublin 

We run development education courses and workshops in the area locally to LYCS, the north east inner city of Dublin, including

an accredited QQI Level 4 course in Local and Global Development.

Accredited QQI Level 6 Training

Our popular QQI Level 6 training in Global Development takes place once a year.

Bespoke Training

Subject to staff availability we can run training for trainer workshops on development education issues on request for organisations who can gather a group of minimum 12 relevant community workers/trainers. Please contact us to discuss further.


We provide resources and support for trainers seeking to add a global perspective to their community development or education work in Ireland, including a revised trainers manual ‘Connecting Communities’ (downloadable here on this site).
