Are you working with children as part of your volunteer program?

If you are then make sure you register for a free training day in London with the British Safety Council. This one-day course will cover personal health and safety for volunteers and also teach you how to deliver basic health and safety to children overseas.

The course is FREE for all Travellers volunteers

How it works
Travellers Worldwide has partnered with the British Safety Council to teach basic health and safety to children in developing countries. Once you have secured a place on your chosen Travellers project, you will be invited to attend a training day at the British Safety Council in London. Your training day will include a health and safety briefing and an examination, which leads to the BSC Level 1 Certificate in Health and Safety at Work, a nationally recognised qualification in health and safety.

You will be briefed on how to deliver basic heath and safety awareness training to people in developing countries, and will be provided with a teaching pack. The British Safety Council aims to reach 3,000 children this year through volunteer programmes.

You will then teach health and safety as part of your voluntary project, and, where possible, help your students achieve the BSC Entry Level Award in Workplace Hazard Awareness, a formal qualification which is already available in UK schools.
