The Guernsey Community Foundation, together with The Learning Company, is offering a training session on ‘Leading & Managing Volunteers’ in July and again in September 2012 , as part of its on-going commitment to support Guernsey’s voluntary sector.

Kathy Tracey from The Learning Company will deliver the training sessions which will help those working with the voluntary sector to think about how they can most effectively manage a volunteer’s time within their organisation, in order for both parties to get the most value out of the relationship.

The training sessions will look at introducing new people, motivating them, and facilitating ‘open door’ exits.

Laurel Le Tocq, Guernsey Community Foundation, said “over recent months, charities and voluntary organisations have told us that they would benefit from training in leading and managing volunteers so we are really pleased to be able to offer these sessions, free of charge, in direct response to the need.

“Spaces are limited to 12 people per session so that each attendee has the opportunity to interact fully with, and contribute to, the learning process. Therefore, because spaces are limited, we recommend that anyone wishing to come along confirms their attendance as soon as possible.”

There is a choice of two dates available for the training:

Thursday 26 July, 5 pm to 7 pm – Delancey Room, Beau Sejour

or Thursday 13 September, 5 pm to 7 pm – Delancey Room, Beau Sejour

If you would like to secure your space, please contact Laurel Le Tocq by Thursday 19 July 2012 at the latest.

Laurel can be contacted at the Guernsey Community Foundation from Tuesday to Friday on 748056 or email laurel @

Please state which date you would like to attend and which organisation you are representing.
