Volunteer Management Training, Course 1, Volunteer Involvement - Getting Started
Created: 18/04/2018, Updated: 30/04/2018
When: 09.30am-1.00pm, Thursday 31 May 2018 Where: Craig Mitchell House, Flemington Road, Glenrothes, KY7 5QF This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action Costs This event is free to attend but to encourage attendance and try and ensure a good turnout to benefit all delegates, we will charge a non-attendance fee of £25.00 per delegate. By submitting a booking for this event you agree to pay this fee for those delegates who have places booked but do not attend.
Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event, thus avoiding non-attendance fees. A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate without incurring a non-attendance fee.
Here are some of the very positive comments made by previous participants, who attended this training last year.
"Found it really worthwhile"; "Really useful"; "Really informative"; "Thanks, actually really helpful information"; "It’s really great to hear other people’s negative and positive experiences"
"Good support services offered by FVA"
"Good to think about things from a different perspective"
"Chance to discuss questions"; "Liked group discussion"
"All very informative".
Whether you don't yet have any volunteers or have been working with volunteers for a while, getting these basics in place will reap great rewards. You'll be able to head off any issues with volunteers not understanding their responsibilities and you'll be clear about yours.

What are the mutual rights and responsibilities of volunteers and organisations?

Anyone who has, or is expecting to have, responsibility for recruiting/managing volunteers in their organisation.
In order to offer places to as many organisations as possible, we are only able to offer two places on each date to members of the same organisation. If your organisation would like to send more than 2 people, please get in touch with us to discuss options with you.
All participants will receive a certificate of attendance. Notes from the session will be sent to participants on their completion of a post-training evaluation, which will be emailed to you.
