Get Ahead with Volunteering

The Open University in Wales, in partnership with Third Sector Support Wales have worked together to develop a free, 9-week online course which you can offer to your existing volunteers

As you’ll be aware, locally and nationally there has been a lot of discussion about the developing difficulties around volunteer recruitment and retention, and the issues that the sector faces as a result.


In response to this, The Open University in Wales, in partnership with Third Sector Support Wales have worked together to develop a free, 9-week online course which you can offer to your existing volunteers.


‘Get ahead with volunteering’ will help your volunteers to develop their confidence, reflect on their volunteering with you, and meet other volunteers from across Wales to share their experiences and
learning. The course has been developed in recognition that some volunteers are keen to develop and change volunteering roles or may be (nearly) ready to progress with you into another volunteering (possibly a leadership) role. They may also want to develop their skills as a pathway to working in the third sector or undertake further learning with The Open University.


The course begins on 16th April 2024 and runs for 9 weeks. Registration is open now and sign-up details can be found in the attached flyer.


We would be grateful if you could encourage your volunteers to sign up for this free Open University course.
