Welcome to Elements Training Portal, a dedicated e-learning space for members of the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector.

Developed by three local infrastructure charities based in the North of Tyne and Gateshead area, working in partnership to overcome challenges such as capacity and geography, Elements gives trustees, staff and volunteers the opportunity to access quality e-learning 24/7 from wherever they have an internet connection.

Although we’re just getting started, we want Elements to become the go-to place for people in our sector across the North East to find flexible, interactive e-learning opportunities that offer a sound understanding of the subjects they need to support them in their work.

Our first course is Good Governance. It is suitable for new trustees and any existing trustees who are looking to refresh their knowledge. We’ll be adding new courses very soon.

For the next steps in learning, or to access specialist support for your organization, you can contact the local infrastructure organisation covering your area:
