Course overview

The board has overall responsibility and accountability for risk. For boards to discharge their role effectively members need to have a basic understanding of risk and risk management.

Used effectively, risk management is a useful management tool to help ensure that not only does the board and its committees focus on the right things, but it should also provide comprehensive assurance that risks are being managed to the best of the organisation’s ability.

This training provides a practical view of what board members and board stakeholders need to know about risk management to help demystify risk; ensure that risks are captured and articulated appropriately; and demonstrate that risk reporting should focus on the management of risk as opposed to the risk itself.

This training is not a deeply theoretical course on the technical aspects of risk management. 

Who should attend?

"It's a great foundation into risk management principles, for someone who has never received formalised training. I found the content easy to follow and allowed me to confirm my existing knowledge but also receive tips on how to improve local processes in my organisation."


Course objectives

“Very well constructed and delivered course - both instructors were excellent - brings current risk management best practice to life in a way that can be easily applied in practice - and takes into account latest developments in a discipline that continues to evolve at pace to support an ever more complex macro & micro backdrop for the NHS.”

"Really enjoyed the course, the content was perfectly pitched and paced, easy to follow and educational. I feel equipped to go back to our Board and have challenging but constructive conversations about what we do now and how we can improve. Thank you.”
