What training do I get? In the UK you will get a full induction and training as well as shadowing other volunteers who will happily show you the ropes. If there is specialist training that comes up that suits your skills and abilities then we can arrange you to take part in this too. For our international projects You will get pre-departure training, if you are on a funded programme the training is once a week for 6 weeks, if it’s another program it would happen over one or two weeks. Full commitment to the training is essential, if you miss training sessions there is the possibility your place will be given to someone else.
