This Level 9 Postgraduate Certificate in Volunteer Leadership and Management aims to introduce volunteer management within the context of effective volunteer resource planning, strategic operations, communications, leadership skills, governance and compliance. The programme is designed for those in volunteer management roles or those involved in managing volunteers in the wider community. This programme aims to equip students with the theory and practical skills, supported through reflecting on their own experience, to lead and manage volunteers in a variety of community, voluntary, non-profit, public and private sector contexts.
This will be the only programme of its kind on the Island of Ireland to focus specifically on volunteer management, balancing between the theoretical principles of volunteering and practical elements of managing and leading volunteers. The programme was designed in partnership with Volunteer Ireland and Volunteer Now (Northern Ireland).
NB: This programme will be delivered subject to accreditation approval by NUI Galway
