Birketts’ Charities Team launches free Trustee Training course
4 July 2023
UK Top 50 law firm, Birketts, has launched a free training course for charity trustees.
Birketts’ Charity Trustee Induction and Refresher Training provides both new and experienced charity trustees with essential legal training to enable them to comply with law and best practice in fulfilling their duties and furthering the success of their charity.
Created in response to feedback from Birketts’ charity clients, the course has been designed to be as flexible and user-friendly as possible. The series of bitesize on-demand webinar modules can be incorporated into any charity’s trustee induction programme, and revisited as part of refresher training as and when required.
On the launch of the new free training course, Liz Brownsell, Partner and Head of Charities at Birketts, said: “For a number of years, we have delivered our charity trustee training as in-person or virtual workshops on specific dates throughout the year. But recent feedback told us that charities were looking for a more flexible solution to complement their internal induction programmes.
“That’s why we’ve now introduced this revitalised programme of free bite sized modules, all of which are instantly accessible on our website to allow trustees to dip in and out of the course in their own time and at their convenience. Our training is designed to give clear guidance on the role, responsibilities, and duties of charity trustees with the aim that attendees finish the course feeling confident about their role and how best to further the success of their charity.”
Simon Brickles, Trustee of Norfolk Community Foundation, said: “Having been through the modules, I consider them really useful for both those who have recently come on board as trustees and those who are seasoned trustees in need of a refresher. Liz gives model expositions in each. They are short and very clear.”
