Sally Reith, Engagement Manager at Shared Interest and previous Level 5
participant shares her thoughts on completing the programme:
“My aims for attending the course were to enhance and develop my knowledge, understanding and ideas for application of good practice in volunteer management. To have the opportunity to research, critically reflect and plan strategies for improving our volunteer involvement. I also hoped to develop a strong peer network of fellow Volunteer Managers with my fellow learners. All of these have been achieved and more.
I feel the course has inspired me to try new ideas and develop new ways of working with our volunteers, including a motivation survey, requesting feedback on my leadership style and surveying staff on their views of our involvement of volunteers. All of these activities, and the research and reflection carried out throughout the course, have helped me develop new plans for the future of our volunteer involvement as well to maximise the positive experiences of volunteers and volunteering".
