Increase your ability to recruit and retain volunteers with the Level 5 qualification in Management of Volunteers

One in five organisations feel that difficulties in the recruitment or retention of volunteers will hold them back over the next three years (The UK Civil Society Almanac, 2009).

Committing to volunteers

Organisations who work with Blue Edge are committed to developing their staff; the next frontier is developing volunteers and recognising the invaluable skills they offer us. Of all our clients, over 90% actively invest in development programmes training in staff management, to date only approximately 10% invest to the same level in training staff to manage volunteers.

Who are these courses for?

These brand new courses are aimed at anyone who manages, supervises or supports volunteers or lead volunteers who supervise others. They cover all the major skill sets required to supervise or manage volunteers, allowing organisations to ensure they are getting the most out of volunteers whilst also enriching the volunteer experience.

What are the benefits?

At the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Promote volunteering opportunities to existing and future volunteers
  • Understand theories and models of motivation and how to apply these within the context of volunteering
  • Identify and develop systems and procedures which support volunteering in your organisation
  • Develop strategies to lead your areas of responsibility

Participants enrolling on these courses will gain a nationally recognised qualification by a leading institute – the ILM.
