Volunteer Training

For leaders old and new to attend and gain new skills and knowledge to take back to their groups. there will be sessions for new volunteers and separate sessions for those who have more experience and have done previous training.
By the end of the session, new volunteers will:
  • Get to know each other, the group and Woodcraft Folk

  • Be able to plan and deliver a game or activity linked to the aims and principles of Woodcraft Folk

  • Be able to use safeguarding procedures to respond to any concerns raised about a child or adult

  • Understand more about the roles and tasks required to ensure an effective and sustainable Woodcraft Folk group

  • Feel supported to commit to the group, identifying a clear role

  • Know where to find further resources and training opportunities​​

For more experienced volunteers we can cover a range of other topics such as Safeguarding, Active Inclusion, Supporting Social Action, Skill and Activity Share etc. If anyone has any ideas for a different particular topic then to get in touch lauren@woodcraft.org.uk to see if we can fit it in. 

If there is anything else you'd like to see covered, please let us know and we will try to fit it in.
Refreshments will be provided. 
We will be running a crèche if needed, but will need to find volunteer help for this. Please do let us know if you need to use the crèche.
