Barefoot Co-op Development training - for worker co-operators who want to provide support to other co-ops
In 2020, Co-op Culture trained 21 members of co-operative and community businesses to deliver specialist business development support. These “barefoot practitioners” are already delivering support to new and existing co-operatives and community businesses and 3 participants have already established a new worker co-operative development body – the People Support Co-op. We have now opened recruitment for a second run, starting in October. Closing date for applications is 1st Sept. See https://www.culture.coop/barefoot-training/ . We're keen to recruit people with worker co-op experience. Any questions, please ask in this thread and I or @Mark Simmonds (Co-op Culture & Platform 6) will try to answer them.
