The article focuses on four key aspects that include the student, the teacher, the curriculum, and finally the school. It is possible, throughout the article, to realize that, despite the fact that the training of Community Developers at different levels of education has shown positive developments, there is still much work to be done to keep up with constant societal changes, in order to meet the real needs of local actors, especially with regard to the preparation of trainers and the infrastructure conditions and equipment used for Community Development Training.
