SHEP Community of Practice

Connecting – Learning – Sharing

SHEP is committed to developing the Project as a ‘community of practice’  East  year we organise a variety of CPD courses and workshops for all the practitioners working through the Project – facilitators, community tutors, trainers, advocates and Coiscéim counsellors and psychotherapists – according to training needs arising and areas of common interest.

Practice is a shared history of learning. Practice is conversational. ‘Communities of Practice’ are groups of people who share a concern (domain) or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better (practice) as they interact regularly (community). Etienne Wenger
