This course is for anyone working with volunteers who would like to gain a qualification and recognition for their role as a coordinator, leader, supervisor or manager of volunteers. The programme will be delivered over a four-month period, during March and July 2019, comprising one workshop session and four online webinars.
The content will cover:
- Managing volunteer expectations
- Understanding volunteer motivations
- Supporting, supervising and developing volunteers
- Giving and receiving feedback
- Skills assessment for volunteers
- Evaluating volunteer achievements
- Appropriate and relevant record keeping
Participants will complete one work-based assignment as a formal assessment; receiving ongoing support and guidance from the tutor via telephone, email and through a dedicated online discussion group. The course also requires a commitment to individual study, including a weekly reflective practice activity.
