Putting People First

Our vision is a world of freedom, peace and justice, where everyone is empowered to live their lives with dignity, equality and respect. This video of our engagement with an #EUAVI funded project, VIVID:T – working towards #DisabilityInclusion in humanitarian action and volunteering – shows you what we believe in and value.

Training Volunteer Development Workers

VC has developed an excellent reputation in the area of training people to work as Volunteer Development Workers. We offer two levels of training to suit different needs and budgets.

Our Venture training aims to prepare prospective development workers, missionaries or volunteers for working in international development. It is vitally important to be well prepared. And the course helps ensure that they can remain committed to the work.

Our Upskills training offers affordable, reliable and flexible online training for those engaged in the humanitarian and development sector. Training which aims to empower you, the learner. Our courses have been created by professional facilitators to build on your existing knowledge while also striving to teach you new skills and best practice. These skills will add value to both you and your organisation.
