If you answer yes to any of these questions, you might be interested in our Volunteer Management Training programme. Whether you involve one or 1,000 volunteers, this training will help you attract and select suitable volunteers and provide a positive experience for all. This interactive training opportunity is packed with practical advice that you can use immediately as well as food for thought as you evaluate how you work with volunteers.

There are four different modules in the training programme. Participants are encouraged to attend all four modules however you can register for any of the modules that meets your current needs.The four modules will be held between February and May 2019 and places are limited to 12 participants on each module to ensure participation.

Module 1: Planning for Volunteer Involvement

This module will help you and your organisation to be more effective in getting the volunteers you want and keeping them once they start volunteering with your organisation.

This module encourages organisations to evaluate their experiences to date of involving volunteers e.g. examining procedures, volunteers’ experiences, and staff opinion. It also focuses on how organisations can plan effectively to take on new volunteers or take on volunteers for the first time ever e.g. designing volunteer roles.

By the end of the module, you will be able to:

  • Explain why you involve volunteers and what motivates volunteers

  • Draft a volunteer role and person specification

  • Identify the potential costs of involving volunteers

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.
