Charity Trustee training will be held at our Southampton office on Monday 21 October. Charities are expected to report on their efforts to ensure that all trustees are trained and inducted to fulfill their role. We offer a tailored half-day course providing a comprehensive induction for new trustees and a useful refresher for existing trustees and ensuring that they are fully aware of their legal and ethical responsibilities as trustees.
Informative and practical, this course will also provide an opportunity for you to network with other trustees and share information with other organisations in order to develop new perspectives and insights into the running of your organisation.
