Exclusive volunteer training

Personal development training for volunteers

As a CFA UK volunteer you give up your time and expertise and it’s important that you get something back.

Feedback shows that you value personal development opportunities, so we worked with a top training provider to tailor something special for our volunteers. Over the course of the year we will deliver training on facilitation, networking and influencing.
