Another new course has just been launched on Qlearning Online: Managing Volunteers. This course has been developed in conjunction with the Volunteer Centre, and is mandatory for those staff who take on direct responsibility for recruiting or managing volunteers. You may also find it a useful course as part of your management development, as it covers aspects of recruiting, inducting, supervising and communicating with volunteers.
Fire Safety (mandatory for all staff) and Introduction to GIRFEC (mandatory for those working in the children and families sector) are available from today. Its important to realise that the Fire Safety course is only covering basic knowledge and skills; to complete Fire Safety training, you must sign off your understanding of your projects Fire plan. The new Quarriers induction portfolio has a sign off section for this to allow you to record your understanding of what to do locally in the event of a fire.
