MDUK Volunteer Development Programme 2022

Museum Development UKĀ are thrilled to be working in collaboration once again with volunteer sector specialistsĀ 10GM to offer an intensive Volunteer Development Programme, for up to 20 museums from across participating areas in the UK.

The programme aims to support participants to review their volunteering strategy, and explore new ways to embed sustainable practice in volunteer development, tailored to their organisational needs.

Outcomes for participating museums will be to:

  • have reviewed their operating model and business/forward plan through the lens of volunteer resourcing
  • understood the volunteer skills needed to deliver their operating model
  • have a plan to develop their volunteer workforce through appropriate recruitment, training and resources to meet defined organisational needs
  • have developed appropriate volunteer policies and procedures
  • have identified volunteer management roles and responsibilities within the workforce
  • have embedded inclusive practice into volunteer development
  • have an organisation specific action plan for volunteer development
