EVOC is delighted to have been awarded Reshaping Care for Older People (RCOP) Change Fund resources to provide a comprehensive training programme for voluntary and community organisations working with older people in Edinburgh, with our colleagues at Volunteer Centre Edinburgh.
During 2013 we plan to provide a wide range of training that is relevant and needed by community and voluntary organisations, with free courses such as:
- First Aid
- Health & Safety
- Minibus Passenger Assistant
- Volunteer management
- Moving & Handling
- Dementia awareness
- Food hygiene
- And many more….
There are already free courses in the diary to kick-start the programme. These can be viewed amongst the EVOC Learning’s course programme. In the spring we are planning a full day event of short taster training sessions during the daytime and evening, and later in the spring/summer we will provide training courses in different venues across Edinburgh and at different times of the day to try to train as many staff, volunteers and management committee members as possible.
Full information on the programme will be published shortly, but if you do have any requests, or want to find out more about the whole programme, please email Ian Brooke. For information on specific courses or bookings, please contact Julieanne at EVOC Learning.
