Sport Ireland acknowledges that there is a significant need within National Governing Bodies for volunteer learning and development support. It is recognised that these volunteers operate at all levels, from local clubs up to regional and national level roles within an NGB. We believe that assistance for this particular demographic will result in enhanced skills for the volunteers and an increased likelihood in their retention as active participants in sports and physical activity. Details of the 2017 Volunteer Training Programme are outlined on the link below and volunteers may book themselves on to courses themselves.
The courses are free and being run in Dublin and Offaly throughout February and March.
