    We asked recent participants in the training, what they liked most about it - here area few of their comments;

    • "It was relaxed and friendly - felt at ease participating, sharing and asking questions.”
    • “I like the group being split into smaller "rooms" on Zoom as it makes it easier to discuss different scenarios.”
    • “I liked how interactive it was and how we were constantly engaged with activities.”
    • “The variety of information provided.” “Clear and concise information.”  “Easy pace to follow.”
    • “How comprehensive it was and how friendly the trainers were.”
    • “The session was really useful and I have noted a couple of additional points that I feel we need to consider while developing our training.”
    • “As a person who has been a volunteer but never managed volunteers before, I found the session very informative.”
    • “I am looking forward to receiving the templates you will provide as a guidance for our own policy and agreements.”

    • What is Volunteering?
    • What are the mutual rights and responsibilities of volunteers and organisations?
    • How can I include volunteering when strategic planning?
    • What is a volunteer policy and why do I need one?
    • What should I include in volunteer role descriptions?
    • What are volunteer agreements and why do I need them?
    • What is the Volunteer Friendly Award?
