This is from the acknowledgments page:
These National Occupational Standards have been developed in consultation with hundreds of individuals from across the UK who manage and co-ordinate volunteers and provide strategic direction on volunteering within their organisations. The Voluntary Sector National Training Organisation (VSNTO) wishes to thank all those involved in their development. This work could not have been completed without their assistance.
The VSNTO would like to give particular thanks to the members of the Managing Volunteers Standards Steering Group, the Technical Working Group and the consultants â€“ The Management Standards Consultancy â€“ who all worked so hard to ensure the validity, quality and relevance of these standards. The UK Co-ordinating Group of the UK Education Regulatory Authorities approved these standards on 20 October 2003.
This publication contains the full and complete suite of occupational standards for the management of volunteers, the NVQ and SVQ frameworks to be based on them at Levels 3 to 5 and the associated Assessment Strategy.
