Bespoke training and consultancy


In-house training: we come to you!

Voscur’s skilled and experienced trainers can deliver in-house training sessions for your board and/or staff team at a time and place to suit you. This can be a cost-effective way of accessing training and often has a great team building impact too. 

We can deliver the following courses specifically for your organisation:

  • Being a Good Board Member 
  • Board effectiveness review
  • Strategic and business planning
  • Board/team away days 
  • Developing board diversity
  • Risk and data management, incorporating GDPR
  • Developing a fundraising strategy
  • Developing corporate income opportunities
  • Applying for core funding

In-house courses are also great value for money: they usually cost less than sending several people on a standard course; they develop peer support and positive team dynamics, as well as new individual skills; and they're designed to meet 100% of your development needs rather than just choosing the best of what's available.

How much does it cost?

Prices vary depending on your organisation's income, and whether you're a Voscur member. They start at £219 and include:

  • Course planning discussions to agree the requirements
  • Development of the course to your individual requirements
  • Delivery of the training at your office (or alternative agreed venue)
  • Course materials (trainer's materials and participant handouts)
  • Facilitation of follow-up support via Voscur's other service - Support Hub, peer support, three specialist networks, commissioning support, etc.
  • An evaluation of the training to review outcomes and requirements and any next steps
