This is a self-directed online course which can be commenced from 3rd November 2021 to 1st May 2022

IoD Professional Director Series Online

The IoD is here to help you be the best leader you can be. Whether you’ve been a director for days or decades, there is always something new to discover about the role, your responsibilities, and the business world around you. In an economy that’s changing by the day, it’s never been more important to be on top of your game with professional development.

To help you understand your role as a director, and future-proof your board and organisation, we’ve developed our Professional Director Series – bringing accessible and digestible CPD to your region on the topics that matter. The whole series – wherever you are in the UK - is mapped to the IoD Director Competency Framework, keeping your learning relevant, up-to-date and in line with your professional development ambitions. Whether you’re embarking on the Certificate in Company Direction or are a qualified Chartered Director, this CPD series is the perfect accompaniment – or refresher – to your existing knowledge.

You’ll also be part of a group of leaders from organisation's of all shapes and sizes across your region, giving you the opportunity to connect, learn from each other, share your setbacks and successes, and encourage each other at the most senior level.

Climate Solutions Accelerator - Virtual

The Institute of Directors is delighted to announce a strategic collaboration with the Royal Scottish Geographical Society. Core to the collaboration is a shared goal to support the development of directors and boards in the critical area of sustainability, so that we can tackle the climate crisis together and create a positive legacy for generations to come.  

The Climate Solutions programmes are unique. They do not just focus on climate literacy but offer practical solutions which can be applied at board level and throughout any organisation.  Over 60,000 people are undertaking the course from a variety of organisations including the Scottish Parliament, international engineering companies, private businesses, local authorities, government agencies and enterprise companies.

The Climate Solutions Accelerator is fully complimentary to all IoD members. To book your place, please log in to your member account.
