Training Programme

How it works

If You are interested in volunteering, you will be invited to meet the Volunteer Coordinator to sign up and get a chance to ask any questions you have about the volunteering program. You will then be given the chance to go into a Digital Skills class to meet the tutor and learners at a time that suits you. Once we've established a regular volunteering schedule to suit you, its a case of cracking on with the training we are offering to Fife council volunteers.
