Code of Good Practice for Development Education


Relevant Tags: No tags were found.

In November 2016, a workshop on ‘Strengthening Good Practice in Development Education’ was held with IDEA members. At the event a decision was made for IDEA to develop a draft Code of Good Practice for Development Education in Ireland, for trial by a number of IDEA member organisations in 2017. This development builds on all of the work already carried out in the existing Good Practice Guidelines by IDEA working groups and partners for key areas of DE activity. 

To advance this in 2017, we have hired an independent consultant to coordinate this work and we are now assembling a cross-sectoral task group of IDEA members to input into this process. The task group will meet in three sessions over the Summer: 

  • First session​ (focus on principles for the Code) - Wednesday, 14 June 11am – 1.30pm
  • Second session (focus on indicators and evidence) Friday, 21 July 11am – 1.30pm
  • Third session (focus on support structures) Wednesday, 06 September 11am – 1.30pm

All sessions will include lunch.
