Pre-Placement Training Weekend

I have now completed my Pre-Placement Training Weekend in Slough. It was a fantastic opportunity to meet like-minded young people who will be undertaking ICS/ICSE in both NW and SW Bangladesh and Tanzania.

The discussions and work we carried out over the weekend covered a wide range of vital topics, including: Introduction to ICS and VSO; Programme Structure; Realities of the Programme; Poverty, Inequality and Development; Diversity and Culture; Return Volunteer Q&A; Cross-Cultural Working; Conflict Management; Reflections; Medical Briefing, and Project Presentations.

Overall, the weekend has increased my enthusiasm and excitement for the project. It was incredible to meet new people who I may potentially find myself on a placement with, and some of them have already become my friends.
