Description/Abstract

Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) is an international development charity that uses the skills of experienced professionals to work alongside local colleagues in underdeveloped countries. It sends trained education practitioners to work in a diverse range of professionally challenging roles in some of the world’s poorest countries. This paper reports on research that examined how time spent on VSO affects the professional attitudes of teachers returning to the UK and how volunteers perceive it to impact on their career prospects.
