How to Conduct Board Skills Audit

Board members are recruited through the ‘public appointments’ process. Their skills are reviewed during the procedure to ensure they can provide direction and leadership, hold senior staff accountable, represent work and scope of the public body.

How to Conduct Board Skills Audit is a vital online course within our Accountability & Governance series. As an individual Board member, there is no doubt about their exceptional skills. However can different expertise work in favour and complement each other, or does the Board heavily reliant on one set of abilities over another? In this expert-led virtual online training, participants will learn about Board skills audit and how balancing different skill sets can help the Boardroom to perform as a collective.

At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
