On Friday night we ran our termly training. Our evening consists of the following:
Hanging out together eating pizza for the first 30 minutes.
We then covered two topics:
The leaders then split into their teams to do a mid-year review based on the goals they had set for 2010-2011 back in June 2010. The groups were asking questions such as:
- Are we on track, for example many groups set targets at the end of June/July?
- If not, is there anything we can do at this stage to meet the targets?
- Or do we need to modify or alter any of the targets?
- What do we want to achieve within our groups in 2011?
Following this we got back together as a group to look at Pastoral Care – Leader Training PowerPoint
Feel free to adapt these ideas. Much of the info for the self-harm training came from training sessions we’ve done with selfharm.co.uk, which is a fantastic resource. The transport and pastoral care training sessions were developed from a combination of places including AMAZE: The Association of Christian Youth and Children’s Workers.
I’m interested to know how do you do your volunteer leader training?
