Event description
Disability Inclusion: Volunteer Management Training "Enhancing your skills to better include volunteers with disability"

About this Event

Time: 9:30am - 3:00pm

Arrival & registrations from 9:00am, for a 9:30am start.

Morning tea and lunch are provided

Audience:

We encourage volunteer leaders to attend, particularly volunteer managers and coordinators, and neighbourhood house coordinators. Professionals who are based in People and Culture are welcome to attend.

About the forum

This one-off training session will provide people who lead volunteers with the basic theoretical understanding and a range of practical skills to support a more inclusive and organisation for people with disability.

Though this event you will be given an introduction to the Victoria ALIVE “Disability Inclusion in Volunteering” micro-credentials and training on inclusive volunteer management practices.

Volunteer managers and coordinators should attend the training to:

  • Build confidence in engaging people with disabilities as volunteers
  • Assess you organisation from a disability inclusion perspective and identify steps you can take to improve access and inclusion
  • Work with fellow volunteer managers on developing basic skills to ensure your volunteer organisation is inclusive for volunteers with disability
  • Build a network of like-minded practitioners
  • Learn how to reduce barriers for people with disability in our volunteer-involving organisations
  • Take part in a workshop that will introduce you to the newly launched disability inclusion micro-credentials
  • Access a free opportunity for professional development and improving your skills

Please note: This is basic, generalised training in disability inclusion volunteer management practices. The training is not specialised training on specific disabilities.

This training is not accredited; however, it contributes points to Volunteering Victoria’s pilot Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program.

Registrations close at 5pm on Tuesday 27 August.
