Building Effectiveness

An intensive bespoke development programme for Hertfordshire charities

Building Effectiveness provides a unique opportunity for organisations to undergo a 12 month intensive development programme tailored to make their organisations stronger, more effective and sustainable.
We are delighted to announce that we are now recruiting participants for Building Effectiveness 2020.

Building Effectiveness is ideally suited to organisations looking to become more strategically focussed and better equipped to face the future. By the end of the programme participating organisations are more effective, resilient and strategic in their outlook. Successful applicants are assigned advisors and mentors to help them to identify their key development areas and plan a tailored development programme. Participants will also benefit from bespoke Leadership Workshops.

Building Effectiveness is open to voluntary and community organisations in Hertfordshire that have been operating for at least one year and have a minimum income of £100,000. We also require that organisations should employ at least one paid manager.

Guidelines on the Building Effectiveness 2020 programme can be found below, alongside the application form.
Application closing date: Friday 6th December 2019

We will be holding an Information session on Monday 18th November 1.30pm-3.00pm (at Foundation House in Hatfield). At this informal session you can meet Louise Marron, our Training & Development Project Manager to discuss the programme, alongside the Cranfield Trust and hear from past participants. Book your place on the information session here
