    Created: 18/04/2018, Updated: 25/05/2018

    When: 09.30am-1.00pm, Tuesday 26 June 2018
    Where: Craig Mitchell House, Flemington Road, Glenrothes, KY7 5QF
    This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action
    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.

    We asked participants who attended these sessions earlier in the year,  what they liked most in the training - here's what they said:

    • "Talking over ideas and methods"
    • "I have always found the trainers to be very knowledgable re their topics"
    • "Chance to network and work with others"  
    • "(topic) made easier to understand"
    • "Meeting new people and being involved in group activities"

    Course Aims:

    To help participants develop their ideas, skills and strategies regarding offering support to volunteers.

    Topics to be covered on the course are:

    •    What is support;
    •    Methods of support;
    •    Methods of supervision;
    •    Managing difficult situations;
    •    Dismissing/counselling out volunteers.

    Who should attend

    Anyone who has, or is expecting to have, responsibility for recruiting/managing volunteers in their organisation.

    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 with you.

    Cancellation Policy

    We ask that you give us a minimum of 48 hours’ notice of cancellation. If you do not attend and either do not cancel or give less than 48 hours’ notice, then your organisation will be charged £25.00.

    Accreditation Award:

    All participants will receive a certificate of attendance. Notes from the session will be provided to participants on completion of a post-training evaluation form which will be e-mailed to you.
