Irish Sports Council Launches Volunteer Training Programme

The Irish Sports Council has launched a programme of volunteer training opportunities for Autumn/Winter 2015 and all courses/seminars are live for registration.

As part of the National Sport Education and Training Hub measure, there are a range of approved programmes and projects. One of these is a Volunteer Support Programme. The ISC acknowledges that there is a significant need within National Governing Bodies for volunteer learning and development support. It is recognised that these volunteers operate at all levels, from local clubs up to regional and national level roles within an NGB. The ISC believe that assistance for this particular demographic will result in enhanced skills for the volunteers and an increased likelihood in their retention as active participants in sports and physical activity. Details of the 2015 Volunteer Training Programme are attached below and volunteers may book themselves on to course’s in the links attached.

As you can imagine it has been a difficult task to meet everyone’s needs regarding courses and locations. In an attempt to address these Regional needs The Irish Sports Council have created the following schedule:

In keeping with volunteers’ busy schedules the courses are predominantly half day courses with the majority scheduled on Saturdays. There is no limit to the number of courses an individual can attend nor is there a minimum requirement. Volunteers are responsible for booking themselves on to all course offerings via the relevant booking links.

Please note there is no cost to volunteers for attending this training.
