St Angela’s College, Sligo to deliver the first island of Ireland designed programme in Volunteer Management

Official word was received today that the Postgraduate Certificate in Volunteer Management and Leadership was approved by the College of Arts at NUI Galway.

The Centre for Lifelong Learning at St Angela’s College, Sligo in partnership with Volunteer Ireland and Volunteer Now (Northern Ireland) have worked 18 months on the design of a programme for the volunteer management sector.

Dr Maria Gallo, Director of the Centre for Lifelong Learning and lead academic for the development of the programme explains: ‘Following an extensive consultation process in all four provinces, there was a recognition of the need for such a programme for the sector,” she added, “This is exciting for the sector, there are already similar programmes in place in both the UK, Europe and North America.”

This Postgraduate Certificate in Volunteer Leadership and Management aims to introduce volunteer management within the context of effective volunteer resource planning, strategic operations, communications, leadership skills, governance and compliance. “By meeting volunteer managers, we identified key themes and topics that will be relevant to study for those in volunteer management roles or those involved in managing volunteers in the wider community.” Maria adds.

Upon successful completion of the one-year, part-time Postgraduate Certificate, students will be able to progress onto the Postgraduate Diploma and Master of Arts in Leadership and Management for the Community and Public Sector, a programme delivered since 2012 drawing students from all over Ireland. This will be the only programme of its kind on the Island of Ireland to focus specifically on volunteer management, balancing between the theoretical principles of volunteering and practical elements of managing and leading volunteers. The programme only requires limited attendance at the Sligo campus starting in September 2019.

The programme will be officially launched at the Volunteer Ireland Conference 2019 on the 10th of April at Marino College in Dublin and at a date to be confirmed with Volunteer Now in Belfast.
