Core Skills in Volunteer Management

Core Skills in Volunteer Management (CSVM) is a suite of training which covers all the essentials of volunteer management.  Suitable for both someone new to volunteer management as well as those who have been in the business for a while, these enjoyable and interactive courses will help you develop your professional volunteer management skills and share experience with other managers.  The courses have been developed by practitioners for practitioners.

The suite is designed so that you can attend all four units and get a complete over view of volunteer management or mix and match individual units on subjects that you feel are of most interest to you. Courses include:

  • Unit 1: Involvement
  • Unit 2: Recruitment and selection
  • Unit 3: Support, supervision and challenges
  • Unit 4: Training and impact measurement

In addition to these core units we also offer a range of enhanced learning opportunities covering a diverse range of topics from Health and Safety and Risk Management, Equal Opportunities and Marketing.

Our training is some of the most competitively priced available (and includes lunch!) at £70 per person per unit.  This is part of our commitment to make high quality training available to as many volunteer management professionals as possible.

You will find further details of any upcoming units here where you can also book a place.  If you would like to know more about the course or if you have any other questions about the training we offer please call 0131 225 0630 or email
