International placements are increasingly common across all sectors of society, and it's not hard to see why: placements are a fantastic way of boosting your CV, developing your experience and investing your time and skills into a project that matters.

Our Placement Prep is a one-day training programme for anyone preparing to go on a work or volunteer placement anywhere in the world, for any duration.

With 65 years' experience sending people overseas, we know what we're doing. And we know how important it is that people going on placement in developing communities, whatever their age, are prepared for everything.

Many universities, colleges, organisations and businesses have overseas placements that they deliver internally or in partnership with others, so our Placement Prep is a general overview that can function as a stand-alone training session, giving your people a basic understanding of what to expect and how to stay safe.

The core components of the day, delivered by international development and security experts, include:

  • Culture;
  • Communication;
  • Safety and Security;
  • Resilience and stress management.

All sessions can be delivered on your campus or at your workplace.

The cost for Placement Prep includes:

  • Training delivered by our international development and safety and security experts;
  • All materials and resources used on the day.

Cost: £1,299 (+VAT and additional travel costs for travel outside York) for up to 30 people.
