Training and education are crucial core values of Frontier. Training is given to volunteers, interns, Frontier staff, and to our partners and beneficiaries in-country. Our highly qualified UK and field staff teams will ensure that you receive quality training on your project.

Not only can you volunteer abroad with us, but we offer you the opportunity to formalise your training with a number of internationally recognised, endorsed and accredited qualifications. Get more out of your gap year, year out or career break with a range of qualifications to suit your career path.

If you’re thinking of gaining a qualification with us and you would like to discuss your options further, why not give our dedicated Training Supervisor a call on 020 7613 2422. Julia has an in-depth knowledge of all of our  qualifications and will be able to find the right one to make the most of your volunteer project.
