Volunteer induction

An opportunity for new volunteers or those who have just started new roles to meet the IET staff team, network with other volunteers, and find out more about the IET.

We hold Volunteer Induction days twice a year (usually around March and October) at Michael Faraday House in Stevenage.

The programme for the day includes:

  • The IET story and its vision, mission, values and behaviours;
  • Being an ambassador for the IET;
  • Tools and resources available to you;
  • Volunteer roles around the IET;
  • Communications and PR;
  • Strategy and finance.

Delegates at the Induction Day outside Michael Faraday House, Stevenage

New for October 2015, the day will incorporate an extended lunch session, providing delegates with the opportunity to network, meet the staff team supporting their role, receive demonstrations on tools and products (eg: Marketing Toolkit, Career Manager, MyCommunity, Knowledge Packs, Volunteer Gateway) and join a tour of Michael Faraday House.

If you are interested in attending our next Volunteer Induction Day, please speak to your staff contact or email for more information.

(Please note that we are currently unable to offer reimbursement of travel expenses from outside of the United Kingdom to attend the Induction Day; please ask your staff contact for further clarification).

What our volunteers say about our Induction Day:

“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate your team in organizing such a great program for Volunteers to get to know the operation/structure of the IET. This will definitely inspire and inform the volunteers and we may feel the sense of belonging in The IET family.

Definitely, this effort should continue in a yearly basis which covers active volunteers around the globe”

“Great stuff, enjoyable, interesting and useful.”

“It’s been great to understand more about the IET and how it operates, especially as I now realise that I knew very little.”

“Finding out about the available resources will definitely prove useful.”

“It’s good that active volunteers are having the chance to visit the IET office – it’s a great experience.”

“Provided a clear structure of where ‘I’ belong in the IET and as a volunteer.”
