Take this Course

Many of the actions that a legacy officer undertakes every day are in fact powers that properly belong to the Trustees of the Charity. In order to facilitate efficient working, and to prevent every decision from having to be referred back to Trustees, many of these powers will be delegated to legacy officers.

What you will learn

This course will tell you which powers can and cannot be delegated, and how to operate effectively while remaining compliant with the charities act.

Completing the course

You must mark each section complete in order to successfully complete the course, but you can return to the sections at any point. At the end of the course you will complete a quiz, which can be retaken if you do not reach the pass mark of 80%. You will also be asked to submit a short written assignment. Upon successful completion of the quiz and assignment, you will receive your certificate!

Once enrolled, you can also download and print the full course notes and a one-page reference guide from the materials section. We recommend printing the full course notes before you take the quiz.

You will still be able to access the course in full at any time from the My Account section of the website, even after you have completed it.
