What We Do

Capacity Development

IDEA’s Capacity Development programme supports our members in providing quality Development Education based on good practice. This strand of our work facilitates up-to-date knowledge and skills sharing within the Development Education sector, enables IDEA members to connect with good practice internationally, and ensures a dynamic, professional, sector that embodies the latest thinking in development and education. The programme involves training and support in the areas of:

  • Development Education Knowledge and Skills
  • Organisational Management
  • Quality and Impact Measurement

IDEA’s membership is diverse with differing needs but we engage with our members to ensure that the training, events and support we offer throughout the year provide everyone with the opportunity to learn new and develop existing skills.

If you have a query about the capacity development support we offer, please contact elaine@ideaonline.ie


We organise training, seminars & meetings to build capacity in the following areas:


IDEA works to connect its membership and also to connect Development Education to wider audiences.
