Course Description

Developing effective solutions to complex social problems is no easy feat. On the one hand, we want evidence-based programmes that are client-centred, ethical and inclusive. Yet on the other hand, we have time and resource constraints that we need to manage. How do we find that sweet spot?

Join us in learning how to integrate professional expertise, research evidence, and community inputs to develop effective social service programme. Analyse social problems from multiple viewpoints. You will be guided through the programme development process through experiential tasks, case studies and interactive discussions.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Assess clients’ social, emotional, psychological, and cultural needs through client-centred service principles and practices
  • Incorporate inclusive practices as well as cultural and social considerations of client-groups into programme development
  • Conduct environmental scanning on the existing client landscape, community needs and programmes available to inform programme development
  • Apply the Logic Model to guide programme development and communication
  • Determine manpower, resources and training required for delivering programmes
  • Identify and tap on available community resources and funding schemes through the community assets analysis


21 hours including synchronous learning and assessment
