Excellence in Volunteer Management L5

Are you a Volunteer Manager looking for further skills development in leadership and interested in gaining a nationally recognised qualification that will challenge your thinking, expand your knowledge and support you in your role? This programme will combine face to face workshops, action learning, coaching and on-line activities, leading to completion of a formal assessment and achievement of the ILM Level 5 Certificate in the Management of Volunteers.

Please see the brochure attached below for full details of the programme, including the details of our Level 5 programme starting in 2017.

Sally Reith, Engagement Manager at Shared Interest and previous Level 5
participant shares her thoughts on completing the programme:
“My aims for attending the course were to enhance and develop my knowledge, understanding and ideas for application of good practice in volunteer management. To have the opportunity to research, critically reflect and plan
strategies for improving our volunteer involvement. I also hoped to develop a strong peer network of fellow Volunteer Managers with my fellow learners. All of these have been achieved and more.
I feel the assignments in this course have been well suited to me being able to develop both my personal leadership
skills but also develop and implement new ideas into our volunteer network. They have encouraged me to reflect on the offering we have, how we can learn and develop this but also to reflect on what we currently do well to build on this
I feel the course has inspired me to try new ideas and develop new ways of working with our volunteers, including a motivation survey, requesting feedback on my leadership style and surveying staff on their views of our involvement of
volunteers. All of these activities, and the research and reflection carried out throughout the course, have helped me develop new plans for the future of our volunteer involvement as well to maximise the positive experiences of volunteers
and volunteering. I look forward to getting stuck in to these. This will inspire me to keep learning, challenging things and developing new ideas as we strive to make our volunteer network the best we can.”
