Trustee e-Learning

"Thank You for the excellent value for money e-learning trusteeship course which I have recently completed. It was quite an eye opener as I never appreciated how much information a trustee is required to know and to have access/reference. The learning will prove to be worthwhile in my role as a new trustee for a small charity. I struggled with some of the modules but a combination of disciplined learning and understanding with some good guesswork got me through the tests. Now the best bit is applying that learning into practice in the hope to help provide a well governed charity."  Ian - February 2016
