The final strand of Capacitybuilders’ Volunteer Management Programme is a £1m bursary scheme to support volunteer management skills development.
Bursaries of up to £1950 are available to fully fund an approved skills development package.
There are three levels of access available based on individual experience and role. You also have the option of obtaining an award from a nationally recognised accreditation body.
Skills development packages will take between five and nine months to complete on a part time basis to suit your needs (depending on your level of access).
To apply for a bursary you must manage volunteers in England, meet the accrediting body criteria for entry to the chosen level of programme and have your application endorsed by your current ‘line manager’, or equivalent.
Delivery is undertaken by experienced, regionally based training providers. You should be able to access a skills development package close to where you live or work. However, distance and online learning options are also available.
