Become a Community Champion Through Voluntary Work

What will I be learning?

If you are looking for voluntary work to become a community champion, gain some work experience, developing your skills or to keep yourself motivated either now or once the current situation with Covid-19 changes, then our friendly Careers Team can offer you free advice and guidance to help you on your way. 

This will be an initial interactive session using Zoom video conferencing.  Don't worry if you're not sure about using new technology, when you enrol on the course, we will contact you and help you set up the links and send you some pre-course information to help you prepare.  

The course will cover the following: 

  • Volunteering, community champion-why do it?
  • What can I volunteer for?
  • Digital volunteering
  • Where to look for voluntary opportunities 
  • How do I apply for voluntary work?

 

At the end of the course we can provide on-going individual support to help you on your way.

 

Does the course lead to a qualification?

This course does not lead to a qualification.

Who is the course for?

The course is for anyone who is looking for voluntary work either now on in the future

What do I need to bring?

Be prepared to log in to Zoom on your computer or tablet and be sure that your device is enabled for sound (microphone and speakers/headphones).  We will email some materials prior to the session.

Are there any additional costs?

None

How will I know how I am progressing during the course?

During the session you will be able to discuss and review your understanding of the topics covered.

Can I have help in the class?

The course will be adapted to individual needs and your tutor may contact you by telephone if necessary.

Progression within DALS

You can progress to any of the other Personal Development or general interest courses offered by DALS at this time.

On completion of this course, you could progress to:

The Career Planning, finding the right job for you and/or the On-line Employability programme which both compliment this course. 

Health and Wellbeing

The slogan you see on our brochures and leaflets is:
meet enjoy learn achieve  
This is because we believe that taking part in adult and community learning can open the door to new friendships, give you something enjoyable and worthwhile to do with your time, enable you to learn something new and give you a sense of achievement.  That's got to make you feel good!

Volunteering opportunities

As more activity is transferring online, use of Zoom and similar systems will become an important part of many voluntary and community activities.

How will I know how I am progressing during the course?

Feedback will be given, both verbally and by the evaluation of completed tasks & projects.  You will receive verbal feedback on the results of your practical exercises.

There is no formal exam, although there is continual evaluation throughout the course.

Towards the end of each session you will use a DerbyLearn forum to record what you have done in class and comment on how you think you got on.  Before the next session your tutor will reply with their feedback.  This is a very good method of recording your own progress, reflecting on the session and a great way to receive motivation from your tutor.
