Pre-departure training is a compulsory three-day residential where you'll get to meet your team, learn about international development and how to keep healthy and safe whilst overseas. It's the perfect time to ask Progressio anything you aren't sure about and our chance to get to know you a bit better. Expect lots of fun and sweets!

Some of the sessions we'll cover are:

  • International development.
  • Poverty.
  • Gender issues.
  • Health, safety and security.
  • Working crossculturally.
  • Volunteer roles.

The date and the venue of your pre-departure training will be emailed to you once you are selected. It normally takes place a month before your departure date.
