Volunteer Training Resources

We offer a range of training for volunteers to help support and develop them within their roles in Nottinghamshire Healthcare. These opportunities are advertised out through the Centres and by email to all volunteers. Take a look at the training dates on our online calendar. If you feel that you need further training or development to help you within your role, have a chat with a member of the team and we’d be happy to help.

We’ve gathered some more training resources that may be of interest to volunteers below.


Nottinghamshire Healthcare – Learning & Organisational Development

Nottinghamshire Healthcare’s Learning and Organisational Development (L&OD) Department is a leader in healthcare education, training, learning and development. Our remit is to support learning and organisational development across Nottinghamshire Healthcare, its more than 8,800 clinical and non-clinical employees and the wider health and social care community.


The courses we offer cover personal and professional development for individuals and teams, including support for service change and transformation.

Visit the Learning and Organisational Development Department website.


Collaborative Working

We think collaboration is the coming together of many different groups with a common purpose and developing a way of working.  It is sometimes difficult, and can challenge how we usually behave and think about ‘how we get things done’.

Have a look at the resources and information we’ve gathered on working collaboratively.


NHS Horizons – School for Change Agents

Do you want to make a difference in your organisation? On this course, you will build the skills, confidence, and supportive community needed to create change in an evolving environment.

You will learn how to become a change agent by generating new ideas, pushing the boundaries, and leading others to do the same in your organisation. You will understand what drives you to create change, how to take action, and how to improve your approaches based on feedback.
