Boardrooms are places where decisions are made, those decisions in the voluntary and public sectors impact on services delivered right across our communities. We all have a role to play, a civic one.

You can is the answer, but that step can sometimes just be too big to take. This pilot programme is built on the basis that by providing you with training, experience and support this will better equip you to go forward for board position in the future.

The programme is aimed at people with no or very little boardroom experience (see information pack for eligibility). This programming is offering up to 25 boardroom apprentice positions providing a practical 12-month board placement.
