Introducing the Voluntary Sector (Free course)

If you feel that you want to learn more about the voluntary sector then this short 8-week course is for you. The course will guide you through some of the distinctive features and values of the voluntary sector, how organisations are funded and involve volunteers and other ‘stakeholders’ in their work. It will also provide you with knowledge and skills you can apply to your own work or volunteering as well as your everyday life. You can progress at your own pace over the 8 weeks; each week will take a minimum of 3 hours of your time.

Enrolling on the course will give you the opportunity to earn an Open University digital badge. Badges are not accredited by The Open University but they're a great way to demonstrate your interest in the subject and commitment to your career, and to provide evidence of continuing professional development.

Once you're signed in, you can manage your digital badges online from My OpenLearn. In addition you can download and print your OpenLearn Statement of Participation – which also displays your Open University badge.

After completing this course you will be able to:

  • demonstrate a basic understanding of what is meant by the voluntary sector, its values, contribution and distinctive features
  • recognise and use some of the terms and concepts associated with understanding the voluntary sector
  • use and apply your knowledge about the voluntary sector to your own work or volunteering experience
  • link your learning with your own personal or career goals
