Being a Host Board
Host Boards play a significant role in the Boardroom Apprentice programme. They provide a safe seat at the table for an aspiring board member to learn. Over 80 Host Boards from across the public and third sector have provided this opportunity since Boardroom Apprentice began.
Dr Tony Macaulay was asked to undertake an impact study with Host Boards between January-March 2022. The aim of the study was to capture feedback (both quantitative and qualitative) from host boards to assess benefits and impact and to identify learning. The Impact Study methodology was an online survey and a series of case study interviews. All 59 Host Boards from the 2021 Programme (from Government Departments, Arm’s Length Bodies/ Non Departmental Public Bodies & Voluntary / Community/Social Enterprise Organisations) to complete an online impact survey.
