NCFE Courses Starting in 2022 | Skills in Volunteering & Mentoring

Posted on behalf of The WEA:

Recruitment and enrolment for the NCFE Award in Mentoring L1 and NCFE Award in Skills in Volunteering L1 are running at the moment. Flyers for both courses can be found below as we are holding Initial Assessments for students by appointment until the end of February as we hope to start both courses in March.

The Award in Mentoring is part of a pathway towards gaining insight into the role and practice of mentoring; developing the knowledge, skills, and understanding of the mentor /mentee relationships; being aware of the regulations that frame mentoring and good practice, and being able to self-reflect and review one’s learning and work practices.

Those that attend may be interested in mentoring or already have some experience. The course is planned over a 12 week period, to start from the first week in March.

The Award Skills in Volunteering course is part of a pathway towards strengthening competencies of potential and existing volunteers in charities and voluntary and community organisations that use volunteers in a significant way to deliver their work. The course will be delivered online over a 6-week period. Due to the success of the first course, we are running our second course.

The outcomes for learners are to improve their skills and knowledge of their role either as a mentor and/or a volunteer in different sectors. For organisations, both qualifications can provide quality assured pool of qualified volunteers and/or mentors; embed skills and knowledge of what organisations need and a pathway of progression that can lead to other learning opportunities e.g accredited employability skills.
