Board Development

 

Applications have now closed for the 2018 Chair/CEO Training days. Please find below information about what we offer, and how you can be involved in the future.

“I had always been told Clore courses were a cut above in terms of relevance, freshness, pace and not patronising, and indeed this was.  Thank you for the opportunity.  Beyond just things learned, just to be able to tell trustees and other colleagues that we now know what’s best practice is going to be so helpful.  You have strengthened our instincts considerably!”  (CEO)

 

The CLP’s Board Development Programme helps individual Board Members, CEO/Artistic Directors, Chairs and Board teams to:

  • Address the particular challenges of working together in the cultural sector
  • Challenge perceptions of best practice
  • Harness creativity and clarity of thought, and
  • Realise their aspirations for their organisation through actionable and measurable outcomes that will develop sustainability and resilience.

What we offer

The Clore Leadership Programme helps individual Board Members, CEO/Artistic Directors, Chairs and Board teams to:

  • Challenge perceptions
  • Harness creativity and clarity of thought, and
  • Realise their aspirations for their organisation through actionable and measurable outcomes that will develop sustainability and resilience

How you learn

We offer customised away days for Boards and executive teams and training days for Chairs and CEOs coming as a pair.

The training is very practical and break-out groups are encouraged to identify action points. These are then listed in a report/action plan which is delivered to the organisation/participants within two weeks of the day.  The training covers issues such as artistic risk, financial information, legal responsibilities, strategic planning, diversity, recruitment and succession planning. The Clore team for the day will normally consist of a course leader, financial expert and a facilitator.

 

What difference will the course make to you?

  • Expected outcomes for participants will be as follows:
  • A firm grounding in the principles and legal requirements of governance
  • Addressing of specific issues connected with their organisation
  • An opportunity to work together as a team away from normal Board business 
  • A practical action plan which they will use to strengthen governance in their organisation

Who can apply

The Board Development Programme is funded by Arts Council England and is available to national portfolio organisations, libraries and museums based in England. 

Applications for the 2018 Chair/CEO Days have now closed. Sign up for our Governance Mailing List to find out about future opportunities for Board Development.
