Module description

This module is designed to be completed as a board.

NGA recommends that skills audits are completed on an annual basis and by new governors/trustees on joining the board. Now, assessing your board’s strengths, weaknesses and areas for improvement is easier than ever!

Designed to be completed together as a group, this module will prompt you to discuss and assess your board’s overall competence across a range of areas, and help you to identify areas where, as a group and as individuals, further improvement is needed. Your results are saved and can be downloaded for future reference alongside some helpful links to additional resources.
