Consultants for Change (C4C) is an innovative professional development programme for those starting out in international development consultancy work or for more experienced consultants. The course aims to deepen your understanding of the processes of consultancy, good practices, as well as the qualities of a good consultant.
The course will equip you with a core understanding of how change happens and how to enable organisations and their staff to own and drive this change themselves. These soft skills can be applied to a whole range of interventions, from fundraising to project evaluation, and ensure that whatever intervention is done, it is done in a way that empowers people and ensures the change is sustained.

For someone who was not particularly a fan of online courses, I changed my mind totally after an interesting and highly rewarding experience of participating in the C4C pilot course. It was an awesome blend of the A-Z of development consultancy work with great supporting resources, efficient and warm facilitation team, networking and priceless learning of course! One catch phrase I took away with me was ‘Consulting with soul’. I had fun all the way! Chibogu Obinwa, participant on the C4C online course
