Trustee Learning Programme and Festival of Trusteeship

Oct 5, 2023 | Uncategorized

Trustee Learning Programme 

It’s Getting on Board’s ambition that as part of their charity leadership role, all trustees regularly set aside time and energy to develop themselves by coming to webinars, taking part in workshops and joining in with networking sessions.

With that in mind, this year we started the Trustee Learning Programme,  a collection of all our free and high-quality webinars, clinics and panel discussions to help you become and be an effective trustee.

There are six strands relating to various stages of trustee development:

  • Newly appointed trustees: Everything you need to get started in your role.
  • Recruiting trustees: Help for charity leaders and staff with open recruitment.
  • Trustee refresher: Give existing trustees’ learning a boost.
  • Hot topics: Discussing the fascinating and challenging current issues that impact our roles as trustees.
  • Taking on new responsibilities: Learning to support moving onto a chair, vice chair or treasurer role.
  • Skilling up: Deepen your knowledge of board matters like fundraising and working with your CEO.

All the Trustee Learning Programme sessions embed best equity, diversity and inclusion practices. Many of our trainers are experts in the field and all trainers who are taking part in the programme are committed to making the training fully inclusive.

All sessions are free thanks to generous sponsorship from Rathbones who support the finance webinars, Russell-Cooke who support our governance webinars and five leading recruitment agencies Charisma, Diversifying Group, Starfish,TPP and Peridot have come together to support the webinars that relate to trustee recruitment.

There is usually at least one session a week; and you can explore the forthcoming collection here.


Festival of Trusteeship

We’re so excited to confirm that this year’s Festival of Trusteeship will be happening from Monday 6th November to Friday 10th November in conjunction with Trustees’ Week.

It’s never been more important for trustees to deliver value to their charities and mission via their board work so we’ll be bringing you a week of amazing online events to help you consider, become and be brilliant and effective trustees.

We have over 20 sessions planned over five days which are split into four strands to help you develop the specific areas of your trustee practice. Whether you’re just getting started on your trustee journey or have been a serial trustee for years there’s something for you.

The strands are:

  • Aspiring Trustees
  • Good Governance
  • Recruitment
  • Thought Leadership

​The best way to make the most of the festival is with a weekly pass that will give you access to all events during the week, as well as access to the recordings and accompanying session information.

We’re very pleased to offer you a discount code for you and your members to use when booking either individual sessions or weekly passes. You can enter this code: LOCAL50, for Ealing VSC members, at the Eventbrite checkout.

You can explore all the sessions here. We look forward to seeing you there!
