The Better Boards Programme
The programme is supported by Hertfordshire County Council Adult Care Services and is now open for applications. Organisations that provide adult social care services in Hertfordshire will be entitled to:
- An initial consultation delivered at their premises supplemented by telephone interviews as required. The purpose of these is to understand their board's situation and identify development needs
- Good Governance training workshop – 4 hours delivered in-house to the board and Chief Executive/key senior manager(s). Offered to organisations whose board has not received training since the 2017 Charity Governance Code.
- Bite-size workshops - short sessions on relevant issues delivered at board meetings. Organisations will be entitled to two Bite-Size sessions free of charge plus one further session at a subsidised rate of £100. Additional sessions will be at full cost (£150 plus trainer’s expenses)
- Open seminars tackling relevant topics for trustees and/or CEOs to learn with peers
Download the Workshop Outlines below for further details on the above. Please note that the Bite Size and Seminar topics will be identified and prioritised following the initial consultations. HCFT Better Boards Workshop Outlines
