CECV Guidelines on the Engagement of Volunteers in Catholic Schools
The CECV Guidelines on the Engagement of Volunteers in Catholic Schools seek to assist principals and employers with the process of selecting and engaging volunteers in schools. In particular, they provide information to assist schools to comply with the Victorian Child Safe Standards and Ministerial Order No 870 in the engagement of volunteers.
In Catholic schools, volunteers:
- contribute to the pool of resources available
- build a shared sense of community
- create opportunities for community connection, involvement and engagement
- strengthen the connection between schools, families, parishes and community.
The guidelines contain useful checklists, templates and forms to assist principals and employers in the engagement of volunteers.
