An award in volunteering skills, SCQF Level 3, 4 or 5, and work experience as a volunteer at DIWC.

What do our learners say?
I like the class because it is informal and relaxed. Taking notes in class and looking up further info at home is better as it can be done at my own pace. The teacher is also good and patient which gives the class a good atmosphere. The small class size is also good.
