Charity trustee competencies maturity matrix

20 October 2021

The charity trustee competencies maturity matrix outlines seven key elements of a trustee’s role in a charity, third sector or voluntary sector organisation. It provides clear steps on how to progress and improve in each of these areas.

This practical tool enables trustees and the organisations they work with to identify their current level of progress in developing against each key competency, to determine where they want to get in 12 months time in each area and how to get there.

The matrix outlines the following core elements for assessment:

  • Understanding the role
  • Technical knowledge
  • Understanding the organisation and market
  • Strategic thinking
  • Vocational skills
  • Behaviours
  • Leadership calibre
