    Costs
    This event is free to attend but to encourage attendance and try and ensure a good turnout to benefit all delegates, we will charge a non-attendance fee of £25.00 per delegate. By submitting a booking for this event you agree to pay this fee for those delegates who have places booked but do not attend.

    Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event, thus avoiding non-attendance fees. A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate without incurring a non-attendance fee.


    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    Here are some of the very positive comments made by previous participants, who attended our volunteer management training last year.

    • “Very informative and really good amount of resources”
    • “Hosts were excellent and engaging”.
    • “Easily laid out”,  “Friendly”
    • “Positive feedback, no wrong answers”
    • “The trainers clearly know their stuff”.
    • “Good to chat with others about volunteers”.

    Course Content

    Despite the constant interest in new and better techniques to recruit volunteers, the true challenge in the volunteer field is first having meaningful activities for volunteers to do. Without preparation you run the risk of attracting people who do not really meet your needs and therefore are the wrong volunteers for you; and having the wrong volunteers may be worse than having no volunteers at all.

    Included in the course:

    •    Motivations for volunteering;
    •    Developing opportunities;
    •    Methods of recruitment;
    •    Recruitment messages;
    •    Recruitment strategies.

    Who should attend

    Anyone who has, or is expecting to have, responsibility for recruiting/managing volunteers in their organisation. Your organisation should be providing a service in Fife.

    In order to offer places to as many organisations as possible, we are only able to offer two places on each date to members of the same organisation. If your organisation would like to send more than 2 people, please get in touch with us to discuss options.
