Pre-departure Orientation Course

January 5 @ 2:00 pm - January 13 @ 5:00 pm AEDT

Welcome to Palms first pre-departure course for 2019.

Planning on volunteering or working overseas? Want to be a better cross-cultural communicator at work, when travelling, or in the community? Registrations for Palms Australia’s 101st Pre-Departure Orientation Course are now open.

Pre-departure preparation is an important part of making an effective contribution overseas. Whether working in development, diplomacy or business, the impact of miscommunication across cultures should not be underestimated. A small early investment in preparation when working in a new culture can have an invaluable impact.

Palms Australia has been providing pre-departure training for cross-cultural workers since 1961. Our expert-lead training courses use a variety of dynamic teaching methods to keep the learning useful, memorable, professional and fun.
