Principles of Galway Volunteer Centre’s Approach to Volunteer Management Training

This programme is 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.

It is the intention of Volunteer Galway to ensure that the modules focus on the practical realities of managing volunteers, so that participants can see the value of taking a strategic and structured approach to volunteer management within their organisation.

Volunteer Galway staff have been trained and accredited through Open College Network Northern Ireland (OCNNI) to deliver the National Volunteer Management Training Programme.

We also work to a limit of 6 people per course, to ensure that each participant has a fair amount of time to contribute on the day, as this, we believe is the most effective means of learning.
