Free Training in Volunteering Skills

by Jackie Snape

During February and March we are able to offer a free 6 day taster course, funded by NLDC,  to disabled adults in the basic principles of volunteering.  The course will demonstrate the benefits of volunteering and how to use volunteering as an opportunity to develop skills for work.

The training can lead to the ASDAN accredited community volunteering qualification which can be completed after the taster if students wish to progress.

The sessions will cover: what is volunteering, finding a volunteering opportunity, career development, environmental awareness and volunteering at events.
