ROVTE

Rural Outreach Volunteer Training and Empowerment

An outreach training programme to help build community capacity and skills within rural areas.
ROVTE is taking learning out into the community where qualified tutors deliver a range of FREE City & Guilds courses to enhance qualifications, build confidence and investment in rural communities.
Individuals have achieved qualifications including:

  • Level 3 Award in Education and Training
  • Levels 1 and 2 in Employability 
  • Non Accredited learning in community subjects

See our Expression of Interest form link

 
As an integral part of the training and achieving a nationally recognised qualification, volunteers are required to undertake a number of hours volunteering within their own rural community.

Volunteeers are expected to undertake an event and commit to a minimum of 20 hours volunteer support during their traning, in order to achieve their qualifications.
 
Volunteering opportunities allow individuals to share their interests and knowledge through community workshops and events on specific interest areas such as crafts, DIY, beauty therapies, gardening and IT.

"I am started to volunteer with FSN in the Health and Wellbeing Hub in July 2018. In September I am starting a level 3 course at FSN through another of their projects and I am also looking into doing a degree in psychology next year. Once I complete the degree I hope to start a new career path and help others and work towards removing the barriers to mental health. The course started me on this new path and changed my life!"
