Quality Assurance Training

Employee Supported Volunteering

As part of SKC’s Employer supported volunteering we coordinate training sessions for Kent charities – providing the venue, marketing and facilitation. The employer presents the session – volunteering their time, knowledge and expertise on a topic relevant to the voluntary sector e.g marketing strategies, social media, internet security, leadership and management, well being and resilience and presentation skills. This form of volunteering is time efficient for employers and benefits many charities during just one session. In a small way enabling charities to operate more effectively and efficiently.
