Please note: this session is not delivered by RDA and will be attended by individuals outside of our organisation.

Engaging in training outside of RDA is valuable for learning across the wider sector. We encourage this as a way of sharing best practices and for networking opportunities.

The programme comprises free, high-quality training including webinars, clinics and panel discussions to support people to become and serve as effective trustees.
