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 FETAC Level 6 accredited and have completed additional training with Volunteer Ireland. They also bring a wealth of practical experience to the training they deliver.

‘Thinking of Involving Volunteers’ is a half-day course designed for organisations who are new to managing volunteers. Training is in a group setting. It is designed to help groups understand the best ways to involve volunteers, understand volunteer expectations, and start on a path to ensuring volunteers become a core and positive part of your organisation. It’s also a great place to network with local organisations.

‘Volunteer Leadership Training’ (VLT) is a two-day modular certified course run twice per year aimed at non-profit organisations who already involve volunteers in their service. Training is in a group setting.


Topics covered include:

*Advertising for volunteers

*Interviewing volunteers


*Induction/Volunteer Agreements

*Developing a volunteer policy

*Planning for volunteer involvement


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]
