Past Project Details


HCF VCS Training Programme 2016-17

The courses were run in partnership with local hosts in each district of Hertfordshire - in community venues to ensure they are accessible for VCS organisations.

The strategy behind our courses is to support organisations to be:

  • Well run (Governance, Management, Business Skills)
  • Operate legally and safely (Safeguarding, Health and Safety, First Aid)
  • Become sustainable (Income generation, marketing)
Key topics that ran multiple times were:
  • Trustee Training
  • Safeguarding Adults at Risk (Level 1/Designated Person)
  • Fundraising
  • Social Media
We placed a particular emphasis on upskilling those responsible for income generation in organisations in order to support sustainability. Our programme of courses aimed to cater for a range of skills and targeted funding sources.

New courses on the programme in 2016-17:
  • Finance Management for Trustees
  • Event Management Basics
  • Managing Change
  • Health & Safety for Managers
  • DIY PR: How to Raise Your Organisation’s Profile
  • Prevent (Safeguarding Communities from the Threat of Terrorism)

In addition we supported the Quality Standards in Volunteering Conference - working with #Team Herts
