This one day accredited course explores how you can effectively manage, support and develop volunteers working in your organisation. It is aimed at Volunteer Managers and Co-ordinators.
- How organisations can support their volunteers effectively…we’ll talk about how support starts from the very beginning of volunteers’ relationship with the organisation, and is the responsibility of both volunteers and paid staff
- How supporting volunteers aids retention..…we’ll look at the link between reviewing progress and checking-in with each other, and volunteers’ wishes to stay and support a project
- How organisations can provide effective learning and skills development for volunteers…we’ll plan a timeline of appropriate role progression and tasks that lead to development – appropriate to your groups’ goals and activities
- How developing volunteers benefits the individuals and the organisation…we’ll prepare resources and our own skills for celebrating the great bits, and being ready for the challenging parts of managing volunteers
Benefits to you
You’ll feel able to manage volunteers after this course and, in addition to the training, you will also have the opportunity to meet and network with other individuals, share ideas and gain valuable support.
This course counts towards the Gateway Qualifications Level 3 Award in Managing Volunteers. A further course on Recruiting Volunteers is also running.
Both parts are certified on their own but delegates must pass both of these courses to gain the full award or can just opt to receive an attendance certificate instead. If delegates are attending both courses, the certificate will be claimed on completion of the second unit.
