Training and Qualifications
At Changing Lives in Cheshire we are committed to developing our staff, volunteers and the wider community through our unique work based learning approach. We aren’t about tests, stuffy classrooms and long, boring sessions - we’re about hands-on experience; getting stuck in; skills that will make a real difference; and qualifications which you can use. Lots of the training we offer is free to volunteers.
Through volunteering with us you can gain relevant vocational and personal skills, experience and recognised qualifications. We will even help you with your CV and polish your interview skills.
