The KODE Programme
The Kimmage Open and Distance Education (KODE) programme offers a range of distance education courses to development workers globally. All KODE courses are practical, learner-centred and skills based.
The KODE programme enables students from practically any location around the globe to participate, even in areas of limited internet connectivity. Course components include: one-to-one tutor, dedicated on-line discussion forum and participants can receive course materials via internet download. Courses range from 5 to 10 weeks in duration.
Students receive a certificate of completion from Kimmage DSC which is widely recognised by international NGOs and Development organisations.

Courses updated in 2016
In 2016, we reviewed and updated all of our KODE courses. Our Planning & Management courses have all been revised to integrate the Results Based Management approach in line with current standards and best practice. We also updated our Child Safeguarding and Protection in Development and Understanding & Addressing Gender Based Violence courses to reflect new developments in these areas.
New Course Launch: Gender and HIV
We launched a new course HIV and Gender: Context, Programming and Response in May 2016.
This course has been developed through a partnership between Kimmage DSC, Trocaire, Irish Red Cross, APA and Oxfam Ireland. This new course provides participants with clear, relevant and up to date information, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to improve HIV programming by reflecting on the complexities and impact of gender roles and behaviours.
