Week 3: Communicating in your community

Introduction

Welcome to Week 3.

This week we look at Learning to communicate more effectively; Communicating with colleagues and peers; Communicating with the community and the general public; and Working with partner services and groups.

The word ‘communicate’ comes from the Latin word communicare, meaning ‘to give’ or ‘to share’. So, clearly, the idea of communication has always involved more than one person.
