Stage-3 Training Attendance

Volunteer training takes place twice a year and typically consists of a series of training sessions which you must attend before becoming a fully vetted/trained volunteer. Each individual session is typically run three times in a given week (usually on a Thurs, Fri & Sat) which gives you the flexibility of attending at a date and time suitable for you.

Next training dates are shown below. Interview dates are shown here. Ring us on 01582 528213 or email us on ghm@stopsley.net to book your place:

All training sessions will be held at the GreenHouse. Please arrive by 10:25/18.25 so the sessions can start on time.

We will inform you of the specific training sessions you need to attend in writing; typically after your informal interview and before training commences. Please note: There is one core training session applicable to all volunteer roles – GHM Induction – and in addition to this core session, subsequent sessions are to be taken depending on the level of training required. For example, to become a GHM Mentor, you need to attend the Induction session PLUS an additional six mentoring specific sessions.

Training Homework

Homework is to be completed for the ‘1 Rapport’ and ‘3 Goals & Endings’ training sessions and must be handed in before the Volunteer Celebration event. You will not be offered a volunteer role until you complete the homework to a satisfactory level.

Further Training

‘Further Training’ sessions are offered regularly throughout the year to augment the basic minimum training levels. Further training sessions details are outlined in the GreenHouse Mentoring Training Sessions Profiles brochure and are subject to change. You are also strongly advised to attend these sessions in addition to volunteer role specific training to augment your subject knowledge.
