Children’s Links have been granted some funding through Enable to provide Volunteer Card training for up to 20 people. The training will be delivered in East Lindsey through May / June and consists of a 5 week course – half a day per week.
The Volunteer Card is a training programme to recognise and reward volunteers and those seeking employment opportunities. The aim of the training is to support volunteers and individuals who wish to learn new skills that will benefit their personal development and also enable their voluntary and community group to develop.
The course is split in to modules, covering themes such as Equality & Diversity, Health & Safety, Good Standards Practice, Team Working and Customer Care.
On successful completion of all modules, the trainee will receive a certificate and a wallet-sized card with a paper form detailing the core training and experience – a ‘volunteering CV’, which is the trainee’s to keep and progress.
The funding is available to those aged 19years and over, and seeking employment opportunities (cannot be currently employed). No upper age limit, but they do need to be seeking employment opportunities.
