Zoe Amar, Chair of the Charity Digital Code of Practice has teamed up with the Cornwall Museums Partnership to create an e-learning project.

This includes two e-learning modules to help organisations to use the code. The first is an introduction to the code, exploring challenges faced by charities and how the code of practice can help the VCSE sector. The second module looks more closely at the principles of the code and how they can be applied to the learner’s organisation. This includes leadership, culture, strategy, skills, managing risks and adaptability.

You can access both modules on the Cornwall Museums Partnership’s website.
