Charity Governance Code for Smaller Charities (UK)
TAKE THIS COURSE
The Charity Governance Code is a framework of principles and related actions designed to help non-profits implement governance best practice in their organisations. For smaller non-profits that may have limited time and budgets, CramdenTECH has developed a learning resource containing a set of model policy and procedural templates to take the hard work out of implementing the Charity Governance Code.
The Charity Governance Code for Smaller Charities course can be utilised in a number of ways. Resources may be used to:
Provide new board trustees with a step-by-step guide to implementing good governance within their charities
Upskill existing trustees and staff. Course participants who successfully complete each lesson in this e-learning resource can obtain a course completion certificate reflecting their learning achievements.
Provide smaller boards with an ‘out-of-the box’ governance management system. Each charity client will receive a 3 month licence to BoardPASS 365, CramdenTECH’s Governance Management System for Non-Profits and SME.
A bank of model governance related policy templates and checklists related to finance, governance management, human resources, data protection and risk management. Board members should read all policy and procedural documents to ensure that the contents reflect their specific organisations needs and requirements. Where amendments are required, these should be made before policy and procedures are formally adopted.
The course is divided in easy-to-follow lessons that map directly to the recommended practices outlined in the Charity Governance Code for Smaller Charities. Participants can choose to follow course lessons sequentially or ‘dip into’ lessons and related topics as they wish. The core lessons covered in the course are:
