Group Training Resources

The best Governance Groups have ongoing training related to their role and responsibilities. To assist QB leadership teams in this, a series of training resources are being developed that can be used in leadership meetings over the course of a number of years to educate and refresh knowledge about key topics.

Each video runs for about 10-13 minutes and is accompanied by a paper resource with the material provided and some discussion questions for the group to discuss or work through.   We encourage Governance Groups to make the time every meeting to spend some every meeting to watch a training video and set aside some time to discuss how this relates to their governance role and what needs to happen to perform their governance role more effectively in the light of this material.
