Welcome to the Volunteer Management Training page. Westmeath Volunteer Centre staff have been trained - accredited through Open College Network Northern Ireland (OCNNI) - to deliver the VCI National Volunteer Management Training Programme.
The programme consists of four half-day modules delivered in a hands-on, participative style and is designed to provide you with a Best Practice Volunteer Management Framework for involving volunteers in your organisation.
• Module 1: Planning for Volunteer Involvement and Developing Volunteer Role Descriptions
• Module 2: Volunteer Recruitment, Selection and Induction
• Module 3: Volunteer Support and Supervision
• Module 4: Designing and Implementing a Volunteer Policy
The training is offered at a low cost to participants. It is expected that participants will attend all four modules as they are designed as part of a continuum. Please check the calendar below to find a schedule of training offered.
If you find a suitable date and location please contact the Volunteer Centre and we will give you further information.
Quote: " We would love to have training in this field for two other members of staff, the training was so beneficial and practical I feel every organisation working with volunteers would benefit greatly from this training."
