Charity Trustee Induction and Refresher Training

Charity Trustee Induction and Refresher Training

Welcome to our free Charity Trustee Induction and Refresher Training course.

This course provides charity trustees (both new and experienced) with essential legal training to enable them to comply with law and best practice in fulfilling their duties and furthering the success of your charity.

We have designed the course in response to your feedback so that it is as flexible and user-friendly as possible and can be incorporated into your charity’s trustee induction programme. The training is delivered as a series of bitesize webinar modules to allow you to dip in and out of the course in your own time at your convenience. You can also revisit modules from time to time if needed.

We hope you find the training useful. We also deliver a rolling programme of webinars throughout the year on a variety of topics. To view our previous webinars, please visit the Charity Law Playlist on our Birketts YouTube channel.
