Trustees’ Week (1-5 November)

Author: Kristina Kopic, Head of Charity and Voluntary Sector, ICAEW

Published: 26 Oct 2021

Trustees’ Week is an annual celebration of the voluntary work of charity trustees, and an opportunity for us to support you with events and training.

Free webinar

We invite you and your fellow trustees to join us for our webinar with expert presenters from MHA to start Trustees’ Week on 1 November (13:00-14:00). The webinar ‘How to ensure your board is financially competent’ will provide a framework to ensure your board is financially competent. Book your place.

Free online training for trustees

We are also re-launching our popular Trustee Training e-learning modules this month. They were developed in partnership with the Charity Commission and other sector experts and have now been improved following feedback from you.

We have updated the content and added video introductions to each of the six modules: Legal responsibilities, Managing board dynamics, Financial responsibilities, Planning for success and impact, Risk management, and Managing relationships.

All Volunteering Community members can access the training free of charge and gain an ICAEW certificate upon successful completion of the multiple-choice assessment, regardless of whether you are an ICAEW member or not, so why not include this as part of your induction programme for new trustees joining the board? The training is not just for chartered accountants; it was designed for all trustees.

You can access the ICAEW Trustee Training here and watch the introduction to the first module, Legal responsibilities below:
