This 3-hour workshop is for people who want to increase their knowledge, skills and confidence in charity governance.


Good governance is essential to the resilience and success of your charity. This interactive online course will introduce you to the principles of good governance based on the Charity Governance Code and Charity Commission guidance.  

It will help you to apply the principles of the Code to your charity’s context and provide practical tools for improving the governance of your charity.  

Who is this course for? 

This is an introductory course, so it is most suitable for people who are new to their governance role or who want a refresher. This will mainly be trustees, but may also include certain staff members, such as Chief Executives, governance officers, company secretaries and finance leads.  

The course does assume that your charity already has at least a basic standard of governance in place to work from. For example, a written governing document and a defined board or committee who are aware that they are responsible for the governance of the charity.  

If you are looking for more advanced content, our Beyond the Basics course may be more suitable.  

If you think your board is currently in crisis, or experiencing serious problems with its governance, please get in touch with WCVA or your local CVC to discuss the issues before coming on this course.
