What the course focusses on

  • Clarity of purpose and setting outcomes
  • The board as genuine governors - acting as a layer of ownership rather than a layer of management
  • Being accountable for the use of time and money

The course responds to the findings of the 2014 benchmark review of governance in the sector.

Six modules and a short assessment

  • What's my job? The role of the director
  • What's our job? The strategic role of the board
  • Who does the job? Recruiting and retaining the best people
  • Let's meet. Inside the boardroom
  • Who do we work for? Accountability, ethics and integrity
  • What's next? Actions and further resource

Who is the course for?

  • Aimed at not for profit directors on "governance boards". Generally where there is a logical governance/staff separation.
  • All directors on these boards, even experienced practitioners will find the refresher useful.
  • Chief executives and senior staff.
  • Anyone with a sector development perspective inside RSTs or NSOs.
  • The modules are broadly generic with limited sport specificity. They are available to the wider NFP sector.
