This post comes from Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA).
Managing, supervising and inspiring volunteers is a key part of the work of a third sector manager; volunteers do not have to follow you as a leader, instead they choose to, so inspiring and keeping them on bard is a challenging job.
WCVA has been working with Learning to Inspire to develop a suite of qualifications in volunteer management.
Learning to Inspire will be offering two programmes of learning which can help you gain a professional qualification and recognition of your volunteer management skills, giving you a choice of studying at level 3, 5 or 7.
- Day 1 Tuesday 21.10.14
- Day 2 Tuesday 18.11.14
- Day 3 Tuesday 13.01.15
- Day 4 Tuesday 10.2.15
- Day 1 Tuesday 30.09.14

The Art of Managing and Supervising volunteers – ILM Level 3
On this programme you will learn the tools to transform your skills as a manager or supervisor of volunteers. This will enable you to:
- Radiate integrity and congruence by understanding your own motivations and ‘map’ of the world
- Inspire others with your own clear vision
- Have a greater influence through understanding the deepest needs of those around you
- Create a culture of individual worth by learning how to communicate with respect and appreciation
- Embrace personal transformation and learn how to manage your own state when the going gets tough
The programme is accredited through the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and offers the opportunity for learners to receive Certification as an ILM Development Award. In addition, if learners complete relevant tasks and assignments they can receive a Level 3 Qualification in The Management of Volunteers.
From £760 (up to 50% funding available for eligible third sector organisations in Wales).
