2018 World Congress: Young Leaders Camp
The World Congress’ 2018 Young Leaders Camp is a residential retreat for young leaders from member colleges of the Federation, and all other interested nations. The camp starts will run from October 7th – October 11th, 2018 in Melbourne Australia and will be hosted by one of Australia’s largest TAFE institutes, Box Hill Institute.
The WFCP is pleased to announce that the 2018 camp includes accredited leadership training and development which can be presented to future employers as evidence of a global perspective.
