Capacitybuilders: Volunteer Management Programme

Fri, 08/01/2010

Capacitybuilders has released details of how it intends to build on its existing investment through the Office of the Third Sectori funded Volunteer Management programme. From April 2010 nearly one million pounds worth of bursary support will be made available to help meet some of the skills development needs of people managing volunteers.
Given the wide range of needs that could have been met through this bursary scheme Capacitybuilders and the Office of the Third Sector have chosen not to spread resources too thinly at the expense of quality and depth of support. To this end, Capacitybuilders are seeking expressions of interest to provide two distinct types of programme. The first will support those coordinating volunteering activity day to day; the second will focus more on those with management and strategic responsibilities. Each will be a tried and tested programme, based on the National Occupational Standards in Volunteer Management, and offering optional accreditation. The deadline for expressions of interest is 8 January 2010 at 1.00pm. For further information please visit: Capacitybuilders: Volunteer Management Programme
