Training for Organisations
Cork Volunteer Centre offers a number of standard training courses for organisations designed by Volunteer Ireland, promoting best practice in volunteer management. Our trainers are QQI Level 6 accredited and have completed additional training with Volunteer Ireland. They also bring a wealth of practical experience to the training they deliver.
Volunteer Leadership Training
(VLT) is run three times per year aimed at non-profit organisations who already involve volunteers in their service.
The training course follows a modular format and is delivered by trained members of staff from Cork Volunteer Centre.
Attendance at all four modules is required for successful completion of the course. The training is tailored for delivery to those within organisations who are responsible for
(1) Planning volunteer programmes;
(2) Recruiting & selecting volunteers;
(3) Supervising volunteers;
(4) Maintaining and overseeing the volunteer policy within the organisation.
Places are limited to 25 participants per course and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. We anticipate demand for this course will be high. However, we will operate a waiting list system in the event of cancellations.
In addition we offer bespoke training tailored to the specific needs of individual organisations. For more information and to talk to us about how we can support your organisation in its work with volunteers email us at [email protected]
