International Learning Opportunities - Professional Development Placement Opportunity

If you’re a manager or leader, permanently employed within the Welsh public and voluntary sector, ILO offers the opportunity to spend 8 weeks in sub-Saharan Africa working on development projects designed to enhance your leadership skills.

This is a very different leadership programme which stretches and challenges participants; taking you out of your comfort zone and allowing you to work more creatively and resourcefully.

The ILO programme is funded by Welsh Government’s Wales for Africa programme. As placements are designed to enhance your leadership skills, your employer would be expected to continue to fund your salary costs for the duration of the placement.
