Being a great trustee

Tuesday, 2 November, 2021 - 16:00 to Tuesday, 23 November, 2021 - 18:00

Being a great trustee is an online learning programme over four weeks with three two-hour workshops and self-directed learning tasks. You'll explore the legal duties of a charity trustee and the skills, knowledge and behaviours you need to be a great trustee. It's run by Yes We Can, and is part of our Trustees' Week 2021 programme.

Being a great trustee is for you if you’re new to trusteeship and want to learn about the role; if you’re an old hand and want a refresher; or if you’re looking to volunteer as a trustee and want to get ready before stepping into the role.

Each two-hour session blends short presentations with individual and small group exercises (including self-assessments) with the focus on drawing from our collective experiences to deepen understanding of, and model, best practice. You’ll form a learning community and will learn from each other as well as us.

The autumn workshop dates are Tuesdays 2, 16 and 23 November, all 16:00-18:00. Each place costs £100. We are also running this programme in March and June this year.
