All face-to-face Volunteer Practice Training remains cancelled. However, our range of online courses and learning webinars are available to you with dates scheduled into December 2021.
We believe that a great volunteer experience not only benefits the volunteer but it helps them make more of a difference.
Volunteer Scotland learning and development programme: Our programme has been designed to assist individuals and organisations with the development of volunteer participation. Through our unique learning approach, individuals and organisations explore their understanding of volunteering, its current trends and best practice.
Your Learning Journey: Our commitment to you as a learner is to provide materials and resources that have been designed with the volunteer in-mind and help you to understand, develop and refine good volunteer practice. In-turn, we ask that you take responsibility for your own learning and further embrace your continuing improvement within your volunteer practice. Read more about Your Learning Journey here
