For some areas training days can be a “big event” or a “calendar highlight” for volunteers. Be it the social aspect (getting to exchange ideas, catch ups, meeting other leaders or people in person for the first time), a chance to have information clarified, big announcements, annual events or simply the chance to learn something new. Each area might do things a little differently. Some go in for one big annual training day. It will always be held on a Saturday or Sunday in a certain location. Some have smaller grouped ones across the year. One thing seems common as comments though, lots of training is “catch it while you can”. There might not be limited places but it might not be proper advertising, it might be held in a difficult location (or the same people travelling a long way each time) or an awkward time. Or perhaps when you saw this title something else sprung to your mind: being welcome to newcomers, if you don’t know anyone, if you have a disability… Inevitably nothing will ever work for everyone. But are there ways that training can be made more realistically accessible?
