FREE Training for Volunteers

Published date: 
Monday, 6th November 2023

Volunteers, Coordinators and Group Managers.

Time is running out!

Secure your place on the Job Gym’s Volunteer Support Programme, before Christmas!

The programme is free-to-access, with no hidden costs.

The programme has four one-day online Masterclasses and are tutor-led.

Each one is delivered on a particular day between 09:30 – 14:30

•             Every Monday is Mental Health Awareness training.

•             Every Tuesday is Safeguarding training.

•             Every Wednesday is Equality and Diversity training.

•             Every Thursday is Resolving Conflict training,

•             and every Friday is First Aid Level 3. (on-site 09:30-16:30)

Each volunteer has the option to complete each of the one-day masterclasses where convenient for them.

They can do it in any order, and can miss a week or two, as long as they attend the agreed classes.

The training is fully accredited, and learners will receive a certificate upon completion.

It is completed on Teams with a tutor. (except for First Aid Level 3, which is on-site).

It contains all the latest guidelines and regulations to ensure the most up-to-date training.

Did I mention it is FREE TO ACCESS for all those working within the charity sector?

This includes paid and unpaid volunteers and extends to those people that are considering starting a role within the sector.

And one last thing before I go…

Although we highly recommend the full course is completed by each learner, we are flexible…

*Whispers* You don’t have to do each Masterclass.

Do what is right for you.

Furthermore, Santa is coming early this year, as each Charity who refers more than 5 volunteers will receive a very special Job Gym gift pack and box of delicious chocs!
