An Introduction to the Chartered Director Qualification
Committing to achieving Chartered Director status is a clear message to your colleagues, customers and network that you are serious about your role and the contributions you make to your organisation.
Standing out from your peers is key in business, and becoming a Chartered Director is an endorsement of your skills, professionalism, and knowledge of corporate governance best-practice. Qualifying also gives you access to learning materials via the IoD Academy for the rest of your career whilst you are an active IoD member, allowing you to stay ahead of trends and changes to business practices and policies, ensuring you make the best decisions for your career and your board in the years to come.
What is a Chartered Director?
Organisations need effective and informed boards and directors who are aware of their personal responsibilities and accountabilities across a spectrum of activities and disciplines. Chartered Director is the professional qualification for directors and recognises the high standards and capabilities that are needed for ensuring that the profession of ‘director’ is understood and placed at the heart of organisational life. Chartered Directors demonstrate continuous commitment and ongoing professional development to maintain the level of effectiveness and practitioner excellence that exemplifies Chartered status and an outstanding contribution to their boards and organisations.
