Learning and development
The Australian Volunteers Program supports professional and personal development.
Preparing to start
The Australian Volunteers Program assists volunteers with getting ready to start their assignment. Along with interactive online learning modules, volunteers participate in a pre-assignment briefing where they have the opportunity to connect with other volunteers and gain additional knowledge and skills to prepare for going on assignment.
Volunteers also participate in an in-country orientation program, which is face-to-face for in-country volunteers and online for remote volunteers, and have the opportunity to conduct some basic language training.
Online learning modules are available to further develop volunteers' skills throughout their assignments.
