This is a really exciting time to join Girlguiding. We are on a mission to amplify the voices of girls and young women, so they can champion change in their own lives and the wider world; to build strong partnerships that can increase our reach and impact; and to increase the support we offer our amazing adult volunteers who deliver incredible experiences to young people across the UK every week. We have recently agreed our 2020+ strategy and begun a process of significant change: transforming the organisation so it can meet the challenges of the future by putting young people and volunteers at the heart of our organisation.

The Volunteer Learning and Development team are responsibility for ensuring the high-quality learning provision for our 100,000 + volunteers. We work in partnership with volunteers and subject matter experts to design and deliver content, oversee the content design and management of internal qualifications and support hundreds of local volunteer trainers to design and deliver their own content. As well as compliance training, we support volunteers on a broad range of topics from virtual guiding, outdoor and adventure, international experiences and leadership.

This is an exciting time to join the team as we implement a new digital learning platform in 2021 and increase our digital offer to volunteers expanding our eLearning and webinar offer. This role will be responsible for the coordination of a wide diversity of projects which fall under the remit of Volunteer Learning & Development including design and creation high quality learning materials to support the development of our new leadership training programme and other key learning areas.  As the content will be primarily delivered through our new digital learning platform so you should be comfortable using digital tools such as webinars and e-learning authoring software to design quality and engaging learning content.

 You will be working with volunteers and relevant teams to ensure the effective planning, implementation and evaluation of projects, so that Girlguiding continues to deliver high quality learning experiences to develop inspirational volunteers who provide excellent Girlguiding experience to girls and young women across the UK.
