Course to prepare volunteers

Have your say

SUNDERLAND College is launching a course to help people prepare for a volunteering role.

The course would help people in some of the high-profile volunteering opportunities which are coming up in the city, including The Colour Run, The Air Show and North East Live.

Paul Stafford, employer liaison manager at the college, said: “We recognise the high profile of volunteering in the recruitment arena.

“This programme is suitable for those who are thinking about working as a volunteer and will provide them with an insight into the role and an awareness of the personal standards required of them whilst volunteering.

“It is also suitable for those who are already in a volunteering role and will enhance both their knowledge and skills.”

The volunteering course will start after Easter.

Anyone interested is asked to contact the college’s employability team on 511 6000 or email
