Volunteer Management Training Course
Whether you involve 1 or 1,000 volunteers, your organisation needs to ensure it manages volunteers effectively - and by that, we mean everything from how an individual volunteer fits in and works along side paid staff (if you have them) to creating and maintaining extended volunteer programmes. Central to any successful volunteering programme, big or small, is effective volunteer management.
Below you can find details of our newly redesigned four module Volunteer Management Training Course. This is a new format course being run in 2011.
