Lincolnshire Volunteer Card Launches NEW Online Training

Would you like to become a more skilled and confident volunteer, and receive a certificate and Volunteer Card to prove it?

If so, Lincolnshire Volunteer Card training is a perfect opportunity for you to gain new skills and knowledge.

The highly successful and popular Lincolnshire Volunteer Card (LVC) training is now available as free online training to enable more people to access the training.

The LVC training was launched in 2012, by the charity Children’s Links, in order to upskill existing volunteers and to give new volunteers the confidence to start volunteering.  To date, around 2,500 volunteers have successfully gained their Volunteer Card in Lincolnshire, which recognises their fantastic contribution to our communities.  The free training consists of 6 subject areas that are essential to volunteering including:

  • Good Practice Standards
  • Health and Safety (including personal safety)
  • Equality and Diversity
  • Safeguarding
  • Customer Care
  • Live Well

The new online training has been developed by Children’s Links and funded by Lincolnshire County Council so that the training package is more accessible to people across the County and in particular for those volunteers who have been unable to access the existing training courses.

The online training has been developed using the award winning package Blendspace.  Janet Bullivant from Children’s Links who have developed the training said “we think it is a great blended learning approach to engage learners beyond the classroom using computers and mobile devises. Through the use of a QR code learners can study at any time and in any place making learning more accessible and interactive”.

Quotes from learners include:

“Being able to take part in a programme like this boosts confidence and gives a solid foundation of knowledge essential to working within the voluntary sector. It also looks excellent on my CV and I have subsequently been accepted onto a degree in social work with Anglia Ruskin University”

“The Volunteer Card Training has enabled me to raise my ambitions and now change my career’

“It reinforced my knowledge and increased my confidence in my role”

The online training is now available.
