Cyber security, data protection, dubious fundraising methods, inadequate scrutiny by Trustees and Governors - all great stories for the press but issues that need to be dealt by the organisations themselves. These challenges have a direct impact on charity and school clients. Ease Training specialise in facilitating training and events for Charity Trustees and Senior Managers, School Heads, Governors and the Senior Management team and can assist with these challenges.
The next Charity Trustee Training event in Cheltenham will take place at Charles Russell Speechlys on Wednesday 7th February 2017. This will include the latest announcements from the Charities Commission and also will be particularly relevant for new Trustees and Trustees who need a refresher. Other similar events will be taking place in London on 31st January, and Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, on the 9th of March. Please sign up early as places are going fast.
Looking ahead to May, Ease Training are planning the detail of their first Charities Conference that will include the latest on Fundraising, following the formation of the Fundraising Regulator, with a host of new rules and limitations that must be understood by Trustees and Charity Managers. Also covered will be the forthcoming major changes in data protection that will affect us all. Whether or not Brexit happens quickly, it wont happen before changes come into effect in May 2018. Save the date: Tuesday May 9th 2017.
For schools, cyber education and online behaviour is a major area of concern and need. At Cheltenham College on Wednesday March 8th, a range of expert speakers will cover various aspects of digital health. This will include the regulations, the implications, behaviours, and a host of practical tips. GCHQ will be attending and also Professor Andy Phippen, a national expert in Cyber behaviour from Plymouth University, focussing on the underlying causes for online behaviour in teenagers. A major highlight will be the opportunity to hear first-hand from some teenagers who will be sharing how and what they actually do online. Do we really know?
