We know that the work of many organisations involved with active leisure and learning is made possible through a dedicated number of volunteers. Because we feel volunteers should not miss out on opportunities to develop and improve their skills, SkillsActive has worked on a number of ways to provide support and training opportunities.
To support those with low budgets or little time, SkillsActive offers a range of discounted packages featuring online courses tailored to specific roles. Each package includes a combination of bite-sized e-learning courses covering key skills, pre-selected to take the hassle out of choosing training for your volunteers.
Purchasing packages can help you save over 20% on e-learning courses.
Mayor’s Sports Legacy Fund
If your volunteers live or work in London, they could be entitled to up to 75% off courses to support their volunteering in sport and physical activity. They simply apply for funding in advance of their course, then commit to a set number of hours of volunteering in return for their subsidised training.
activepassport is a verified online record of an individual’s training, volunteering, CPD, qualifications, and achievements. This can be a great tool for managing your volunteers, as you can track their hours and monitor what training they have taken.
