Derbyshire VCI Passport Training Dates Set

Almost exactly a month ago, we announced that we would be running a series of free accredited training session for volunteers who work with children or young people. This accreditation is known as the VCI Passport.

We are delighted to announce that we now have a series of dates booked for this training at the Swadlincote Learning Centre.

  • Thursday 14th July 09:00 – 4:30.
  • Wednesday 20th July 09:00– 4:30.
  • Thursday 21st July 09:00 – 1:00.

This is a county-wide accredited training programme that has been developed by the County Council and the voluntary sector to address the initial training needs of organisations and volunteers in this sector.

The course consists of five 3-hour modules covering:

  • Equality and Diversity
  • Safeguarding
  • Health and Safety
  • First Aid
  • Consulting Children and Young People

Each of these sessions will be delivered by approved trainers provided by Derbyshire County Council. At least two of the session will be led by Chris Harris, who you may already know as the Operations Director here at South Derbyshire CVS.

If you’ve already contacted us about a place on this training, we will contact you direct in the next couple of days, however, we still have places available, so if you are interested, please download the VCI Passport South Derbyshire Interest Form and return it completed to chrisw@sdcvs.org.uk for each volunteer.
