Helping to organise the Joint Study Day:
CTI and its sister organisations OT Frontiers and ADAPT have been running an annual study day for AHPs who have an interest in working in low and middle income countries. The next study day will be held online in 2021 (most likely a Saturday) and two volunteers are needed from CTI to support its development. No particular experience necessary and students welcome. Following recent BLM initiatives, we particularly want to encourage volunteers from diverse backgrounds to help shape this study day for the future. Email us if you have any questions.
Also, anyone with recent volunteering overseas experiences (face to face or virtual) who would like to present at the Joint Study Day in a short 15 minute presentation, please email us for further information. This is an excellent event for networking and meeting other AHPs with professional links in other countries and aims to showcase the variety of voluntary work overseas.
Opportunity to get involved with writing and producing guide to working abroad
Many of you will be familiar with our guide for AHPs preparing to work in a low or middle income country available here.
We are looking for people who would be interested in joining a steering group comprising CTI members together with our sister organisations in OT (OT Frontiers) and Physio (ADAPT) The plan is to revise the document during 2021, updating it to include changes as a result of the pandemic and Black Lives Matter issues raised by all professions.
We are looking to our members for volunteers to help with this. We need to nominate someone by December 1st 2020 and then work would start in early 2021 coordinated an OT with huge experience who was closely involved with the original document.
It is a great opportunity to work with colleagues from physio and OT who have experience in working abroad. Even if you have not yet worked abroad it would be helpful to have your input as we want to make it relevant for people like you!
Please do give some serious consideration to putting your name forward. We particularly welcome colleagues who are currently based outside the UK.
