  • Face-to-face training – 1, 2 or 3 day courses, held in person at the Volunteer Scotland Office.
  • Interactive Learning Bites – 2 hour online sessions
  • Open University Courses – Free to access any time and therefore have no start/end date or time

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.
