 Volunteering Victoria Training

Volunteering Victoria offers a number of training services to volunteer involving organisations, including local government, not-for-profits and community organizations who want to ensure up to date skills for volunteer program managers or coordinators.

Program modules include:

  • Recruitment & Retention of Volunteers: How to compete in an increasingly tight market for volunteers, and how to keep them once you have them.
  • Induction and Orientation of Volunteers: A crucial part of the volunteer’s experience is the induction and orientation into an organisation. This session outlines best practice step by step to help ensure organisations set the right tone at the outset of this important relationship.
  • Managing Volunteers: Practical approaches to performance management and dealing with conflict, for organisations that want to invest in managing a volunteer workforce and get the best from them.
  • Standards and Best Practice Frameworks: Guidance and practical application of the National Standards for Involving Volunteers in Not-for-profit Organisations.
  • Establishing a Volunteer Program: Covers all aspects of establishing a volunteer program, including recruitment and retention, management and legal and regulatory requirements.
