This short training series of three half day workshops seeks to strengthen the skills and understanding of volunteer managers so that they become confident and competent in their role.

The workshops are delivered by Mosaic Creative using a combination of short presentations, group discussions, learning games, scenarios and drama sketches performed by the trainers.

These workshops are accompanied by a comprehensive guide to managing volunteers specifically written and cartoon illustrated for this programme.
