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.


Introduction to Managing Volunteers - Thursday 23 May 2019, 10am to 1.30pm
This practical, interactive, half-day course will provide staff who are new to managing volunteers (or have not previously had formal training) with an overview of the essential aspects of managing volunteers or coordinating a volunteering programme.
By the end of the course, you will;
• Be able to define volunteering and its benefits 
• Have identified good practice at each key stage of a ‘volunteer journey’ (e.g. enquiring, application, interview, induction, support and supervision, exit)
• Understand the policies and procedures you should have in place to recruit, safeguard and retain volunteers 
• 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. 
Cost. Our training programme is kindly subsidised by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets (LBTH) via a Mainstream Grant. This enables us to offer discounts to certain organisations. Cost starts at just £30. Book your place.
