When: 09.30am-1.00pm, Wednesday 13 June 2018 Where: New Volunteer House, 16 East Fergus Place, Kirkcaldy, KY1 1XT 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.
It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.
Previous participants, who attended these sessions earlier in the year, made these comments about what they liked most in the training:
"Talking over ideas and methods"
"I have always found the trainers to be very knowledgable re their topics"
"Chance to network and work with others"
"(topic) made easier to understand"
"Meeting new people and being involved in group activities"
Despite the constant interest in new and better techniques to recruit volunteers, the true challenge in the volunteer field is first having meaningful activities for volunteers to do. Without preparation you run the risk of attracting people who do not really meet your needs and therefore are the wrong volunteers for you; and having the wrong volunteers may be worse than having no volunteers at all.
Included in the course:
• Motivations for volunteering;
• Developing opportunities;
• Methods of recruitment;
• Recruitment messages;
• Recruitment strategies.
Who should attend
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.
We ask that you give us a minimum of 48 hours’ notice of cancellation. If you do not attend and either do not cancel or give less than 48 hours’ notice, then your organisation will be charged £25.00.
All participants will receive a certificate of attendance. Notes from the training will be sent to all participants who complete a post-training evaluation, which will be emailed to you.
