Training for volunteer managers

Our workshops are designed to be interactive and to give you the chance to try out new ways of working in volunteer management, recruitment and retention.
 

 
Volunteer Management for Beginners
Thursday 26 April 2018, 10am – 1pm
 
This practical and interactive course is aimed at those who are new to managing volunteers. You may be a Volunteer Coordinator for the first time, or perhaps managing volunteers has been added to your main job. Or you may have been managing volunteers for a while without formal training and want to check that you doing things right. By the end of the session you will:
 
• Be able to define volunteering, and identify benefits and challenges
• Have identified the stages of a ‘volunteer journey’ and good practice at each stage
• Understand the key policies and procedures you should have in place to recruit, safeguard and retain volunteers, including important legal issues
• Have thought about your own skills and areas for development in relation to managing volunteers
• Have identified actions that you can take back to your organisation to improve how volunteers are managed
