You may have done charity work of some kind, perhaps something like collecting things for those in need through your school. But did you know there are official career paths involved in working with a registered charity? In this programme, you’ll discover which roles are available in charity and what skills and values you’ll need to succeed in them.  You’ll dive right into the world of charity organisations through quizzes, activities and interactive content.

What’s Included: 

In this virtual work experience programme, you will explore such aspects of working in charity as volunteer management, fundraising, and policy development. After building a foundational knowledge of the various sectors, you’ll discover if any of the roles within them are right for you. You’ll hear from professionals in the industry and complete projects and self-assessments to cement your understanding of the industry, finishing the programme with a downloadable certificate.

Introduction to Charity

So what makes a charity a legitimate place to work? Learn the factual definition of a ‘registered charity’ and what causes they might support. Get a sense of what the roles in these organisations really are and if you are suited to them. Then put your skills to the test by completing a project on empathy and ethics.

Aqsa Saleemi, Year 12 Student

Thank you for all your time and effort. The program was by far the best experience I’ve had virtually compared to other virtual experiences I’ve done. I liked the layout and the interactive activities, and I learnt a lot I didn’t know. I would definitely recommend this program to others; it was a great experience I would love to do it all again.
