Volunteer Development Programme
All new volunteers must attend our Volunteer Development Programme before going on an assignment.
The next courses are on:
Sunday 12 June 2016 - Manchester
Sunday 02 October 2016 - Birmingham
This one-day course will equip you with the necessary skills to go on an overseas assignment as a Professional Volunteer and ask questions from Team Leaders. Once you have completed this course you can sign up to our volunteer list. At the course you will also find out about how you can apply for a bursary towards your first assignment.
This course will also increase your understanding of Vision Aid Overseas' work to transform access to eye care in developing countries and now offers 5 interactive CET points approved for Optometrists and Dispensing Opticians.
To attend the Volunteer Development Programme, you must first become a member of Vision Aid Overseas.
