Skills development through International Volunteering
Having been involved in many international exchange programmes and projects over many years. I believe that I have real insight into just how beneficial taking part can be. This workshop will reflect on some of the things I have done, discuss the skills and experience potential gained from being involved and how this can develop your confidence, your leadership skills and of course your attractiveness to a potential employer.
