Projects at the CVCL
We have been involved in some truly inspiring projects and peer-leadership events. Not only have they developed the skills of those working on them, but they have also had a tremendous impact on communities around the world.
We are developing new projects all the time. Take a look at some of our current projects to gain an idea of the types of projects we get involved in and how they can apply to your studies.
What is it?
The Global Leadership Development (GLD) programme is an exciting three-day learning opportunity. It helps to engage, empower and enable people from different backgrounds to fulfil their potential through peer education.
Taking part in the programme will help develop your leadership skills. You'll get the opportunity to interact with people from different backgrounds. You'll also get the confidence to generate positive change, not just in your own lives, but in the wider community too. This is instrumental in creating a more cohesive and understanding society.
The programme will run over three days and aims to promote:
- Transferable skills
- Personal development
- Group or team development
- Critical thinking
- Knowledge exchange
Who can access the programme?
This programme is available to UCLan students and the wider community. CVCL can work in partnership with organisations to support the delivery of the programme to:
- Resettlers, such as asylum seekers and refugees
- Young people
- People in recovery
This list is not exhaustive, so please email the CVCL Team if you would like more information.
How is the programme delivered?
The CVCL team deliver the GLD programme to students at our Preston or Burnley campuses. Community delivery on behalf of organisations can take place on our campuses or at a community venue.
When does the programme run?
The programme is delivered at various points throughout the year. Please email the CVCL Team to find out when the next programme is being delivered.
How much does it cost?
There is a charge associated with the delivery of the programme and this supports CVCL to meet any associated running costs. Charges will vary depending on whether you are a UCLan student or an organisation. Please contact the CVCL team to find out programme costs.
What is it?
The Higher Education Volunteering (HEV) fund offers grants of up to £500 for UCLan students. On the programme you'll plan and deliver projects which support grassroots and community activity.
The HEV fund requires UCLan students to work with voluntary, community and faith sector organisations. If your application is successful, you'll develop funding applications and manage these projects. You'll also be considered if you've developed a funding application in collaboration with a school or other public sector organisation.
Who can access the fund?
HEV funding applications must be student-led. The aim of the fund is to support students to gain experience in writing funding applications and develop project management skills. Therefore, applications submitted independently by organisations will not be considered.
However, we would still like to hear from organisations interested in accessing the HEV funding. There may be students who are interested in participating in this funding scheme who haven’t yet found an organisation to collaborate with. Please email the CVCL Team to make further enquiries.
What is the process to apply?
Students should develop and submit a HEV funding application form in partnership with an organisation. Support with the planning of a project can be accessed via the CVCL team. Students and organisations can contact us directly for this support if required.
Once submitted, your application form will be assessed by the CVCL Team. You'll be informed within five working days via email if your funding application has been successful.
To apply please complete the HEV funding application form.
