Benefits to you and your people

Often some of the most capable people within society, people like your employees and students don’t seek out trusteeship.

This may be because they don’t know about it, or because they feel they are ill-equipped to perform or think that their skills, knowledge and experience aren't relevant to the role.


Leading a charity helps equip your people with the skills and mindsets needed to
tackle today’s leadership issues and translate that into action within your
organisation and the wider world.

Our partnership offer

Charity Board Leadership Programme

The Charity Board Leadership Programme guides participants through what makes an effective, strategic and responsible trustee. Many people who've taken the programme find a position within weeks of completing the course (some even find a position while the course is still ongoing!).

Our flagship six-week programme has six cohorts a year. Employers and universities can join one of the six open cohorts we run a year, or commission their own.
