Spell casting

There was a time when if you wanted to become a community worker, you could head off to college, get a diploma and apply to a local authority CLD team where there were jobs aplenty. But that pathway belongs to a different era and today it has all but disappeared.  Many would argue that community work shouldn’t have been a local authority function in the first place but the demise of CLD begs the question – where do aspiring community workers and leaders go to learn their craft. TEDx perhaps? Alex Walker, longstanding DTAS supporter, offers some tips on casting spells.
