CSVM Unit Five: Training your volunteers

Q. What if I invest in training my volunteers and then they leave?

A. Imagine if you don’t train them and then they stay?

To get the most out of your volunteers and to make sure that they deliver the best service for your organisation you need to train them effectively. If you are involved in the training of volunteers then you need to know how to develop and deliver the best possible training. Good training saves time and money. 

During this practical course you will learn how to assess learning needs, understand different learning styles and how to develop a training programme.
