SHARE are pleased to be able to offer this great opportunity for anyone who wants to improve the way they work with their volunteers. It is widely recognised that managing volunteers can be quite different to managing paid staff and this course will help you to improve your skills in this area as well as sharing experience and learning with others in similar roles in the region.

The course will help you to gain a solid foundation in the specific skill set needed to supervise, support, organise and motivate a team of volunteers, and a qualification with the Institute of Leadership and Management (Level 3 Award in Management of Volunteers).

The trainer, Christine Laverock, regularly works with the voluntary and community sector and previous participants on her courses have given us excellent feedback about her style of course delivery, her responsiveness to individual needs, her communication and in-depth understanding of the subject

As well as traditional volunteer management ideas the course will also look at the new challenges for volunteer managers – such as how to work with more diverse volunteer teams; an area of increasing development for many of our museums.

The four session courses start next month and are located in Bedford or Stowmarket. The course requires a commitment of £100 from each participant (but contact Sally Ackroyd in the SHARE team ( if this is prohibitive for your museum).

Please read the further details and apply by 22nd February if you are interested.
