Trustee Leadership Programme

  • Our Trustee Leadership Programme is delivered by social enterprise Cause 4 in partnership with the Clothworkers’ Company. The acclaimed programme, launched in 2014, was developed to provide participants with the skills and confidence required to join a charity as a board member.
  • Run over five evenings, the programme is an enriching career development opportunity, covering key responsibilities of Trustees and other regulatory issues. Participants also receive first-hand insights from senior charity experts as well as gaining opportunities to network. This is a fulfilling and career-enriching opportunity for the individuals, while also providing the charities themselves with a fresh and diverse pool of potential board members.
  • The next London programme is due to commence in October 2020. Due to the incredible popularity, one-day accelerated programmes will take place later this year in Manchester, Bristol. Glasgow and the Midlands.
