AVM working with Open University to raise the profile of volunteer management.

The Open University is currently producing some material for two short courses called

Self Development for Managers and Managing People and their potential.

They would like to film some interviews with managers along the themes that are mentioned below, and have asked AVM if some of our members may be interested in being interviewed and filmed. They are  looking for people who have responsibility for managing volunteers, not necessarily  senior managers or directors . They are hoping to interview managers across a range of sectors including those managing staff as well as volunteers.

They hope to be doing some interviews over the next couple of weeks. The interviews would take about an hour or so and they would probably film either at or close to the persons place of work. They would obviously talk to the people in advance to advise them on the types of things they would want to ask them, so that interviewees are happy that they want to contribute.

The course is a short course delivered online to students and covers a number of different areas

Managing People and their potential covers:

• Welfare, Well-being and engagement at work
• Keeping healthy and Safe at work
• Understanding and Managing risks
• Work health and Well being

Self Development for Managers covers:

• Personal Development
• Time Management
• Developing a PDP
• Planning into action
