RDA UK have developed an e-learning website which provides a new way for RDA volunteers to gain access to training and development opportunities by taking part in short, interactive, online courses.

The first courses to be released in this format are governance and safeguarding. Both of these courses should be helpful and relevant to trustees, particularly if you missed the Governance Training sessions. If you are a new trustee this is a great way to learn a bit more about the role or to refresh your memory if you have been doing the role for a while.
