The aim of PAVS accredited
courses is to:
- enhance and develop voluntary sector personnel skills
- Increase knowledge levels
- contribute to building the capacity of the sector overall
- encourage the development of a culture of lifelong learning
- increase and widen participation in learning
Courses are designed for
anyone involved in voluntary activity in Pembrokeshire. This includes
volunteers, paid staff, and trustees.
PAVS offer a number of
courses designed for the voluntary and community sector. The units
detailed below are just some of courses offered by PAVS. The units
are accredited through the Open College Network in Wales (see here
for more details about the OCN). This means that you have the
option to get a nationally recognised qualification if this is important
to you. This does not mean that you have to take an exam! You just
need to put into practice what you learn on the course and keep
examples and evidence of what you do in a portfolio (folder).
This portfolio is then used as the basis for assessment. There is
an additional registration/accreditation fee to OCN Cymru to cover
the costs of external verification (checking the portfolio)
and the issue of your certificate. If you do not want to get a qualification,
then don't let that stop you coming on the course - it is entirely
Other accredited courses
are available (such as First Aid and Health and Safety)but are accredited
through other awarding bodies. Certificates will be issued to participants
on successful completion of a multiple choice test at the end of
the course. There is nothing else to pay - and no further work to
do for assessment.
