Introduction to volunteer management

Volunteers are valuable to asset to any organisation. To ensure volunteers and organisation have a mutually beneficial experience, good support and management is important. Having a robust volunteering programme will be a contributing factor for you.

This one day course is aimed at those who are new to volunteer management, or are looking to refresh their knowledge. It will give you an overview of different aspects of a volunteering programme; planning, recruitment; support, development, evaluation, inclusion and equalities.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Explain and implement the processes of volunteer recruitment, selection, and induction.
  • Implement approaches which help to motivate and retain volunteers.
  • Implement practices that support volunteers to increase in confidence, develop skills and progress in their role
  • Outline the key principles of volunteer support and review

This one day course is aimed at those who support, manage and induct volunteers working in their service.
