Looking to Study?
A word of warning: Don't assume another degree is going to help and this might be something you want to explore in a career consultation. A degree is going to cost you thousands of pounds and is a major time commitment; is not going to make you a development worker - but I might help. The most complete listing of UK based International Development related courses, full- and part-time, can be found at the Development Studies Association, other international centres and distance learning on Reliefweb.
Other relevant short course are offered by Merlin, RedR, BOND and MedAir.
International Development and Relief Jobs
These are probably the hardest to find on the internet. As a specialist you should know the key players and networks within your area of expertise. There is no one single site listing all the possible International development jobs and opportunities - there are hundreds of them and many are specialist sites. Some of the sector's key sites are listed on the job page.
Through a kcoach.net career consultation you can discover what sites are relevant to you and where your jobs and opportunity might be.
