Training and development for the board
Given the level of responsibility the board holds, it is vital that every member has the skills and abilities they need to carry out their role.
Management committees should ensure that all their members receive the necessary induction, training and ongoing support needed to discharge their duties effectively.
To maximise the benefits of training and support, management committees need to take the time to plan how to ensure they are equipped to carry out their responsibilities. The dynamics of the role may mean that members find it challenging to commit additional time and management committees may be reluctant to prioritise resources for training. It is therefore important to be flexible and creative in how and when training and support is provided.
