There are lots of things to know and do to be a successful community group. The Wheelhouse offers a range of training and development opportunities that you can find here. Training opportunities are identified at three levels to help assist you with your decision:


New trustees, staff or volunteers wanting to learn the fundamentals of good governance, management, planning and organisational development.


Trustees, staff or volunteers with some experience who would like to increase their skills and knowledge.


Trustees, staff or volunteers who have governance experience and knowledge who are looking to refresh or further develop their skills and  knowledge.

Please note if you submit an event, Wheelhouse partners may help promote the event on their websites.

Regrettably, registration fees cannot be refunded when cancellations are received within two working days prior to any Wheelhouse event or a registered participant does not attend.
