    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.

    We asked people who attended these sessions last year, what they liked most about our training - here are some 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.”

    Course Content

    Despite the constant interest in new and better techniques to recruit volunteers, the true challenge in the volunteer field is first having meaningful activities for volunteers to do. Without preparation you run the risk of attracting people who do not really meet your needs and therefore are the wrong volunteers for you; and having the wrong volunteers may be worse than having no volunteers at all.

    Included in the course:

    •    Motivations for volunteering;
    •    Developing opportunities;
    •    Methods of recruitment;
    •    Recruitment messages;
    •    Recruitment strategies.

    Who should attend

    Anyone who has, or is expecting to have, responsibility for recruiting/managing volunteers in their organisation. Your organisation should be providing a service in Fife.

    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.
