Roles and duties of trustees
Trustees play an important role in making sure charities are well managed and can achieve their aims. Understanding your duties as a trustee will help you run your charity effectively, keep to the law and make a bigger difference.
NCVO, in partnership with the Foundation for Social Improvement (FSI), have created an accessible, interactive trustee eLearning course that you can study at your own pace, at a time that suits you.
This course will equip you with the basics of being a trustee. It offers an overview and understanding of the roles and main duties of trustees and can fit around your schedule and priorities.
By the end of the course you will be able to:
- identify what charity status, liability and legal form means
- describe your role and main duties as a trustee
- review the six main duties set out in the Charity Commission’s The Essential Trustee
- confidently apply your trustee duties in real life
- consider common difficulties faced by trustees
WHO SHOULD COMPLETE THE COURSE?
This eLearning course has three pathways suitable for
- those thinking of becoming a trustee
- those who are new to governance and trusteeship
- existing trustees who would benefit from a refresher course.
The course is designed to take approximately half a day to complete in full, including exercises. You can complete the course at your own pace within your access period (30 days) and can pause at any point and come back to where you left off as your progress will be saved.
Note: the access period begins on date of purchase.
