Accreditation for Existing Volunteers

Home-start Bristol is offering Open College Network Accreditation to volunteers on the Volunteer Preparation Course from Winter 2008. The qualification will be at level 1 or level 2.  It is proof of the ability to study at GCSE level.  We would like to be able to offer this opportunity to existing volunteers.  In order to complete the qualification you would need to refresh your learning from the preparation course and complete some written work.

For volunteers who would be interested in gaining this qualification we would offer three tutorials.  The first would look at the process and what is required.  The Second to review the work you have done and give you feedback to complete the written work.  The final tutorial would be to look at the completed work and give any final feedback. The completed work is then taken to an external moderation meeting for the qualification to be awarded.

If anyone is interested in going through the accreditation process to gain the qualification please do give Jill or Helen a ring at the office.
