The business has a briefing session with volunteers on arrival

What does this mean?

  • It is important to have a briefing session with volunteers on arrival to introduce yourself and the programme in person.  This is much like an induction you would give to employees on recruitment to give them all the information necessary to enable them to perform their role in the program.
  • The session should also include going through the contract as well as the information pack and allowing the volunteer to ask questions.
  • As with any induction or training session, records need to be kept as per the training register template given in the sections above.
