“The charity sector can feel large, overwhelming and impossible to get into. That is why Charity Fast-Track is so important - it's the only course of its kind, delivered by experts and with real, practical experience of what working for a charity is like. It gives you experience, confidence, and networking opportunities like no other. What are you waiting for?”
Beth, Charity Apprentice

"The first highlight of the year for me was to gain a placement with Child.org. I was assisting Charity Concierge, working on volunteer recruitment, management and operations. This has been such a valuable experience, I've gained so many new skills and discovered a lot about my strengths and weaknesses."
Georgie Hepworth, Charity Fast-Tracker 2017
"I loved the fact that you were encouraged to be ambitious and creative throughout the tasks, and were really supported with helping make these exciting visions a reality. The fundraising module was so versatile - from running Harry Potter quizzes to recruiting and managing a team for my Under The Breadline challenge fundraiser."

Our investment in Charity Fast-Trackers is an investment in the future of the charity sector.
The course content inspired me to think about and question certain approaches to charity work, and helped me to understand how ‘doing good’ is not always easy and straightforward. Fundraising tasks challenged me to step out of my comfort zone to raise huge funds for an amazing charity, and left me feeling like a local celebrity.

"Charity Fast-Track has taught me so much in such a short space of time. From the very first month I learnt things about the third sector that I wouldn’t have been able to anywhere else. In the first few months I started learning about the different types of fundraising, social enterprises, changes to legislation and attended the Bootcamp weekend where I met like-minded people and made friends I still talk to today"
