Governing your organisation
To enable participants to understand good governance and the systems by which organisations are run
Governance is the systems and processes which ensure the overall direction, effectiveness, supervision and accountability of your organisation – it is crucial for the effective management of any third sector organisation. On this course you will explore the principles of good governance, consider how your organisation measures up to them, and explore the systems and the codes of practice you need to put in place to demonstrate you are a good and effective voluntary organisation.

By the end of the session, participants will:

  • understand the purpose and uses of your ‘governing instrument’ (your constitution or rules) 
  • understand the difference between governance and management 
  • have considered the Trustee’s relationship with paid staff including the Chief Officer
  • explore the importance of Nolan principles and Trustee codes of conduct 
  • understand the roles of Sub-committees and executive committees 
  • understand the role of AGMs and other membership meetings 
  • have an overview of good practice in trustee recruitment
