The Dialogue Society offers three courses to enhance skills for dialogue and proactive citizenship: the Dialogue School, the Success School and the Media School. The three schools are provided by the Dialogue Society at its offices and are completely free to participants. The Dialogue Society is particularly interested in making these programmes available to young people who lack access to such training and to small groups and charities which could particularly benefit from it. The aim of these projects is to increase the competence and confidence of young people and community groups in the UK, thereby helping them to bring their own communities together.
In addition, and the Dialogue Society co-delivers a Masters degree in Dialogue Studies with Keele University. This unique new Masters degree, exploring the approaches of government and nongovernmental agencies to the crucial issues of intercultural dialogue, social cohesion and peace-building, includes a ten-week work placement at the Dialogue Society.
