What is the purpose of these qualifications?
The Skills — Third Sector organisations (charities, social enterprises and voluntary organisations) play an important role in society, and the nation’s economic long-term prosperity requires individuals to have the right skills to meet the demands of a changing economy.
Campaigning is about organisations or individuals trying to change things by influencing governments, companies or the general public. Campaigners do this to benefit society, to help people speak out or to raise awareness of issues. This Advanced Level Apprenticeship in Campaigning gives apprentices the knowledge and skills to be successful campaigners.
Fundraising is a key in Skills — Third Sector voluntary and community groups and the need for expertise in this area has never been greater. Funding from local, regional and central government sources has been dramatically cut and individual giving has also dropped. Organisations are looking for ways to improve their income streams from a diverse range of sources developing workforce skills in this area through the Advanced Level Apprenticeship in Fundraising Practice is one crucial element of this process.
Volunteer managers in voluntary and community groups are also widely used across the public services. The health service, in particular, has many volunteer managers. Their role, again, is likely to become increasingly more important as changes are introduced into the health service in order to deliver cost-effective solutions for things that were previously provided by the state. This means that the demand for volunteer management skills are certainly going to increase and the Advanced Level Apprenticeship in Volunteer Management will enable individuals to develop the skills to recruit, support and manage the citizens who volunteer their time and expertise to be more involved in delivering local services.
