Valuable informal learning opportunities for developing skills

We don’t only learn when we sit in a class; we actually learn a great deal during social and other activities we are involved in daily, or when volunteering to do work for free. A team leader in a church youth group learns leadership skills, a volunteer at the local HIV/AIDS clinic acquires nursing skills, and you learn a lot about business from doing odd jobs in your friend’s construction business. This section describes the skills that you can acquire through work experience, programmes offered at Community Education and Training Colleges, informal short courses and free courses offered on the internet.
