Volunteering with The Welding Institute - National Volunteers' Week 2020

Volunteering with The Welding Institute

In recognition of this week being National Volunteers’ Week 2020, The Welding Institute would like to highlight the important role that our volunteers have and continue to play within the Institute. With the challenges faced by everybody this year, we are more grateful than ever!

Volunteers’ Week is celebrated annually to recognise the contributions that people across the country make through volunteering. Find out more here.

The Welding Institute would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our volunteers as, without their support, the Institute could not provide the services and experiences to its Members that it does. Our volunteers are a vital part of making these experiences so positive!

As a Professional Engineering Institution, one of our aims is to encourage the progression of our Members professionally through utilising the knowledge and experience of our more established Members. This aim has been continuously met by the hard work and effort of our volunteers, who are involved with the development of the Institute through participation on our Boards and Committees, supporting our Branch Network, managing events, or running Educational Outreach Programmes, to name just a few examples.

Our volunteers are also responsible for mentoring and assessing applicants in their pursuit of professional membership and Engineering Council registration, and this can be a challenging yet rewarding process. The role of membership and registration assessor allows volunteers to play a meaningful and valuable role in supporting the progression of other engineers and technicians in the industry, encouraging them to develop their skills and confidence. Volunteering is also an excellent opportunity for you to demonstrate your professional experience and support your own personal development too!

Types of Volunteers

Volunteers of The Welding Institute take many different forms, with the majority being volunteers that assist with the professional development of our Members through mentoring and assessing Members for professional status.
