23 September 2015 at 10:00 AM to 23 September 2015 at 4:30 PM

Posted by: Voluntary Sector Training

This one day session is aimed at anyone responsible for managing volunteers who work in their organisations. The course explores how you can effectively manage, support and develop volunteers working in your organisation.

By the end of the session you will be able to:

  • Explain 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.
  • Explain 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.
  • Explain 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.
  • Explain 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
