Our part-time overseas development training programme Venture 2016 (one weekend per month over 4 months at VC HQ) is aimed at prospective Development Workers and Volunteers and offers an experience that will give the volunteer or development worker the confidence that he/she is fully prepared to work overseas.
The programme now features a module on Baseline Research Methodologies – essential for helping to design needs based projects.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the course it gave me valuable info on volunteering overseas and I learned a lot about my own strengths and weaknesses which surprised me somewhat at times!” – J.M. Venture 2015
“Many thanks again for the hard work that went into our training programme last year. It really was an eye-opening and life-changing experience for me. I’m in touch with another Venture colleague and am really delighted that she’s settling into her new post overseas. It gives me great hope that I can do the same!” – T.K. Venture 2015
