The Graduate Certificate & Graduate Diploma in Community Leadership and Social Development aim to imparts skills and knowledge to those who are interested in the multi-disciplinary understanding of the issues and challenges in the practice of community leadership. This is particularly useful for those working in the civil and social service sector. We hope that this programme will help support community leaders to play a progressive role in Singapore's social development.

Upon successful completion of the six core courses, students will be awarded with a Graduate Diploma in Community Leadership and Social Development.
This programme will be especially relevant to those seeking to develop advanced knowledge and expertise in community leadership and social development for occupations within the civil and social services, the social sciences, and those who wish to obtain a specialised qualification for their current professions.
Graduates will be able to apply their knowledge and skills in a wide range of careers within the civil service or non-profit sector, especially those that require community leadership and an in-depth understanding of social-cultural, political and economic issues. Students who are already in such careers will add value to their existing work with this specialised qualification and professional upgrading. This programme also provides those who wish to switch careers with expanded options in the field of community leadership and social development.
