In partnership with the Cardiff School of Education and Social Policy we can offer a FREE short course accredited at level 3. This course will develop a greater understanding of governance at board level, highlighting how the Board and Trustees can operate effectively and make a difference to the strategic elements of organisations. At the end of the course you will have an understanding of the important role and responsibilities of Board members and how members can make a valuable contribution to their organisation; the expectations and skills required and the support mechanisms and professional development opportunities that are available.
