Taking part in the voluntary sector is an introductory course for people who are new to working or volunteering in the voluntary sector, or those who might be looking to enhance their knowledge and skills in order to improve their career progression. The course will also be relevant to people seeking paid work, volunteer and trustee roles in the sector. Although the course focuses on skills and knowledge relevant for those working or volunteering, it will also be relevant to people with a general interest perhaps as donors, supporters or carers who have involvement with voluntary organisations.
