College launches volunteering course

Have your say

PEOPLE looking for work and those already volunteering are invited to develop their skills through a soon-to-be-launched college course.

The new programme at Sunderland College aims to provide an insight into the role of volunteers as well as raising awareness of the skills and standards required.

It is also suitable for those who are already in a volunteering role and who want to develop their knowledge and skills.

Skills taught on the course will include building confidence and motivation, as well as improving communication skills.

It will also show how adding volunteer work to a CV can work in job seekers’ favour by supporting job applications.
