IoD Scotland - The Apprentice Director Workshop

08 Oct 2019
IoD Scotland, Edinburgh

This one-day workshop is designed for the newly-appointed, or apprentice directors who want to gain the basic tools to do the job. It outlines the role and legal responsibilities of a director and explores how the apprentice moves from managing to directing. It is important that all directors, on appointment, receive induction about their role and the significant duties and legal liabilities that go with it. Directors have a duty to exercise a standard of skill, care and diligence and this workshop will provide delegates with the know-how and insights to effectively fulfil and grow within the role.
