Media Release: 4 May 2020 – R0078
It’s not just Brock University’s degree programs that have moved online to help slow the spread of COVID-19, it’s also the school’s professional development opportunities.
Goodman Group, the Goodman School of Business’ community-focused learning and development services provider, is offering its Non-Profit Leadership Certificate Program completely online beginning Thursday, June 4.
Originally planned to take place in the new Rankin Family Pavilion at Brock, the fifth cohort of the program will instead be delivered weekly through live video conferencing using Microsoft Teams.
“This is the first time we’re offering any of our professional development programs exclusively online,” said Cassie Price, Manager, Goodman Group Projects. “Although the seminars will look a bit different with everyone participating virtually, many of our instructors are experienced with leading seminars in an online environment, so the high-quality content people expect from Goodman Group will not change.”
The six-week program geared towards non-profit professionals will take place every Thursday from June 4 to July 16, with a break for the Canada Day long weekend. Each training day will consist of two online seminars, one from noon to 3 p.m. and a second from 4 to 7 p.m. The one-hour break will allow time for participants to individually reflect on their learning or ask questions of their instructors, which consist of a mix of Brock faculty members and industry experts.
The cost to enroll in the Non-Profit Leadership Certificate Program is $3,250 plus tax per participant; however, with funding available through the Canada-Ontario Job Grant, the cost could be as low as $541 plus tax. Anyone interested in applying for the grant should email Goodman Group for more information, including grant eligibility.
The deadline to register for the Non-Profit Leadership Certificate Program is Monday, May 11.
