Training

Volunteer Network provides training around general issues of volunteering.  The training is accessible, affordable and appropriate.

Some organisations have a non-negotiable policy in regard to potential volunteers attending orientation or specialsied training before commencing work for them.

Volunteer Network offers several volunteer orientation workshops throughout the year to all new and potential volunteers.  It covers volunteer rights and responsibilities, problems you might face as a volunteer, effective communication skills, and information about working with people who are frail aged and/or have a disability.

On-going training varies from organisation to organisation.  This type of training will continue to upgrade your skills for the job you are doing and increase your knowledge and skills in other areas.

Volunteer Network is currently offering Training to Volunteers.  We can do core Volunteer Training and Specialised Training.  Training can also be trailor-made to suite your organisation needs (times, days and hours negotiable).
