The course is to develop awareness of volunteering and how to become a volunteer.
The course covers volunteering, voluntary organisations and working as a volunteer with a chosen organisation.
The level 1 in volunteering supports you to access volunteering roles. It might seem straightforward to ask: ‘What is volunteering?’. However, the roles that volunteers fulfil are diverse, and the amounts of time that people give vary substantially.
As a volunteer you may get the chance to develop new skills and put into practice existing skills. Although you will not receive payment, you could have your expenses or training costs covered. There are all sorts of reasons to volunteer, including:
- helping others and your local community
- meeting new people
- taking part in something which is important to you.
- making a difference
- doing something you enjoy
- developing your interests
- learning something new
- gaining experience and improving your CV
- boosting your job prospects
You will also learn and gain on this course – skills related to your industry sector, teamwork, leadership skills, problem-solving capacity, the ability to be adaptable, positive communication skills, planning, prioritisation and time management skills and sales. Learners will be able to make sure that they are being provided with a safe and secure working environment that promotes their health and well-being.
