EVOLVE: CPD for Volunteer Managers

Evolve is our dynamic forum for Volunteer Managers to help with Continuing Professional Development. Evolve brings together volunteer managers with lots of different experience to learn, share experiences, and network.

Each Evolve has a different thematic focus, concentrating on your professional development. Evolve is also an opportunity to give and receive peer support.
It is an invaluable tool for everyone with responsibility for recruiting, managing or supporting volunteers (whether paid or as a volunteer, whether in frontline service delivery or serving on a management board or committee) and everyone will be made very welcome.

It's completely free but we do ask people to book so check out details of our next session and please come along.

Since 2008 there has been a marked change of volunteer motivation. The recession and Welfare Reform have contributed somewhat to this new landscape. More people than ever are volunteering to find work. Brian Thompson, Volunteer Centre Edinburgh’s Employability Service Manager, will give you some top tips and ideas about how to best support such volunteers.  You’ll  have the opportunity to hear about our exciting and innovative  employability coaching and mentoring projects, how to refer your volunteers to these projects and have the chance to ask questions about any aspect of this key part of being a manager of volunteers.

There will be a presentation and time for questions and discussion.  Please come ready with your questions and comments on this and any other current volunteering management issue you want to get informal peer support with. (Tea, coffee and biscuits provided.)
