e-learning: Fundamentals of delivering online training for volunteers @ Online Webinar

Many challenges face Volunteer Involving Organisations, primarily these are around the delivery of face-to-face services by volunteers. While you may be exploring alternative forms of volunteering such as virtual volunteering you should now take the time to also explore delivering your volunteer training online.

In this session we’ll explore a series of tips and tricks that will help you maximise the engagement and effectiveness of your online training.

This webinar is delivered via the Zoom platform
