Volunteer Development Programme

All new volunteers must attend our Volunteer Development Programme before going on an assignment. 


The next courses are on:

Sunday 27 November - Glasgow

Sunday 05 March 2017 - London 

Sign up to attend a course here.

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.

Once you have joined VAO, you can sign up for the Volunteer Development Programme here.
