  • the skills required to lead and manage a charity

  • the role trustees should play in the performance and effectiveness of a charity

  • the role of national and local Government with the charitable sector

  • the role of the Charity Commission

  • charities' accountability to their beneficiaries, their donors, and the general public

  • the effective delivery of services
