Training

 

Louth Volunteer Centre can deliver a range range of bespoke and modular training to Volunteering Involving organisations (VIO's) on a range of volunteer management related issues.

Our Volunteer Leadership Training is designed to cover the steps you would take when involving volunteers.

Your local Volunteer Centre staff have been trained - accredited through QQI or Open College Network Northern Ireland (OCNNI) - to deliver the Volunteer Ireland Volunteer Leadership Training Programme, which has been revedeloped and updated in 2017. The programme consists of four modules delivered in a hands-on, participative style and is designed to provide you with a best practice volunteer leadership framework for involving volunteers in your organisation.

Module overiew:

MODULE 1

Involving Volunteers! Is your organisation a volunteer magnet? Steps to consider! 
Benefits to completing the first training session: 
Whether you are a small community and voluntary organisation run by volunteers or a large national organisation with multiple offices, the steps you take in involving volunteers are similar. Even if you have volunteers in place, this session is an opportunity to review work with volunteers and get useful information and tips along the way. 

MODULE 2

Volunteer Recruitment & Selection. They’re attracted – now what?
Benefits to completing the second training session:
The key is the volunteer is attracted to the work you do and what you have to offer. They want to get involved!
This session will take you through the steps to get them to recognise that you’re the organisation for them. Remember, first impressions are important. How you sell your organisation in terms of meeting the volunteers' needs is crucial.

MODULE 3

Steps  for  success  in  leadership! Now you’ve got ‘em, how do you keep ‘em?
Benefits  to  completing  the  third  training  session:
Research consistently shows that the way volunteers are managed and supported is crucially important. Volunteers who are well supported from the start are more likely to be satisfied in their roles and therefore more likely to stay and make a difference in your organisation. 
This session will help you plan and deliver an effective volunteer leadership programme.

MODULE 4

A policy we can all get behind! What to do & how to do it…..preventing issues arising!
Benefits to completing the fourth training session: Undoubtedly, the hardest part of volunteer leadership is dealing with problems that arise with volunteers.
This session involves looking at how you approach dealing with a problem and the steps you can take to devise a clear policy that will help you navigate through the situation. You’re going to see that policy doesn’t have to be complicated and wordy and even if you don’t think that right now, you’ll be policy mad by the end of this session! 

 

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. 

The date and locaton of our training will be dependant on participants.and their location. This national training programme has recently been reviewed and updated and is based on real-work scenarios.
