Projects Abroad Partnership with British Safety Council
Earlier this year we were approached by the British Safety Council to work together on a major programme to introduce Health and Safety Education to children in schools and care centres around the world. Volunteers in the UK are able to join a free course in London where they will be able to gain the Level 1 Certificate in Health and Safety at Work. They will then be given a briefing on how to deliver the programme when they are overseas.
The course is available to all UK volunteers joining Teaching and Care placements overseas. The British Safety Council will pay for all transport costs of volunteers, accommodation (where necessary), as well as providing lunch. If you want to join one of these programmes you can read more here about the Projects Abroad partnership with the British Safety Council or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The first course is on Friday 16th January 2009.
Ian Birbeck, our Recruitment Director said "It is an exciting partnership. We are hoping that lots of our volunteers will take up this great offer from the British Safety Council not just to get a qualification but also be able to deliver Health and Safety Work Education to children that don't get the opportunity otherwise."
