Among them is the introduction of a third sector skills council, which would work with higher education colleges and other training bodies to ensure there are courses available to meet the specific needs of the voluntary sector workforce.
Ben Kernighan, deputy chief executive of the NCVO, said his organisation would want to play a role in such a body and use the experience it gained from hosting the Workforce Hub.
The NCVO's other demands include a plea to protect lottery funds, which are currently under threat of being diverted to meet the cost of the 2012 Olympics.
The priorities will be unveiled at the umbrella body's annual conference today.
Stuart Etherington, chief executive of the NCVO, will warn of funding cuts in his keynote speech. He will say: "Our predictions suggest we face difficult conditions ahead."
