International workshop

International workshop was organised on 10-11/06/2015 by the partner organisation "Pathways: Inspirational Development C.I.C." in Bishoip's Castle, a small rural town with a population of 1600 on the English-Welsh border in an area known as "The Welsh Marches". The topic of the workshop/trainings was "Volunteering: A Conduit for Social & Democratic Development by practitioners, with practitioners and for those who would be practitioners" emphasising volunteering management.
With the idea that sharing, analysing and planning experience is at the heart of the action the workshop programme contained a variety of experiences based on present voluntary action in the town and provided examples capable of development in other contexts. Managers of volunteers and volunteers-practitioners from each project partner country were trained during the workshop, developed ideas and started planning local volunteering initiatives.
Before attending the workshop all participants completed a questionnaire that was used to assist organisers in providing for particular needs and interests and in detailed planning of the event.
The workshop focused on volunteering management. Management of all types is a "process" with many aspects. The workshop focused on the elements of this process. The agenda was composed of three sessions with regular plenary and forum based reflections and assessments.
The agenda explored important aspects of volunteering including: causes, aims and purposes; recruitment, motivation and morale; evaluation of performance and outcomes; risk management; recognition; construction of support and partnership networks; development of sustainable processes through creative action.
One aim of the workshop was that each partner, having considered the various issues, will create for their own local context and in their own language, a manual that is relevant to the actions they promote. 
The programme was experiential and inter-active with participants working together on issues through meetings and discussions with local practitioners. Participants maintained personal recordings and reflection.
