Abstract

The Development Education Research Centre of the Institute of Education was commissioned by VSO to undertake a longitudinal study of how returned volunteers (RVs) take forward their enthusiasms, skills, passions and learning from their placement once back in the UK or Ireland. Following an initial baseline study with 49 Returned Volunteers (RVs) in May 2009 via a questionnaire, 21 RVs were each interviewed three times between July 2009 and April 2010. In addition, the research team conducted a series of discussions over the course of the research with staff from VSO in order to compare data gathered with other known evidence. The main themes from these interviews are given below and compared with other existing published research on international volunteers.
