    All day
    Dundee, United Kingdom

    Topic: Volunteering and Employability
    Date: 24th August Time: TBA Venue: TBC
    This is an early preview to DSEN’s next Network meeting. Spaces are limited, please in the first instance contact
    Raymond Chan, to show your interest/book.

    Numerous benefits have been identified by both staff and volunteers who describe the experience of volunteering
    as ‘life changing’. Some of the most notable benefits found from volunteering was an increase self-esteem
    and confidence amongst volunteers.

    Employability is about being capable of getting and keeping fulfilling work. Employability is the capability to
    move within the labour market, and to realise potential through sustainable employment. Employability is not
    just about the capability to gain/move into initial employment, it is also about the quality of employment.
