The IoD has just released its 2016/2017 Professional Development portfolio, which includes the latest updates on the IoD training offering and information about all programmes and upcoming courses.
In a time of uncertainty for British businesses, the IoD upholds its mission to be the champion of business and to train and develop its leaders across all sectors. We aim to equip directors with the competencies needed to navigate the changing landscape by providing a comprehensive portfolio of training solutions.
New for 2016/17 is the Director Competency Framework, a free tool designed to support directors and senior leaders in their professional development. Its launch comes at a crucial time when, regrettably, governance scandals are regularly highlighted by the media and the time to ensure our business leaders are qualified, has never been greater.
The portfolio also outlines the important upgrades the Chartered Director programme and IoD qualifications have undergone to better meet directors’ fast-changing needs. From taking online exams remotely to new modular qualification routes, the IoD has simplified its qualification system to minimise time away from work and guarantee maximum flexibility, allowing directors to keep learning and developing professionally while still attending to their important duties.
The whole IoD professional development offering – open courses, bespoke programmes, the Chartered Director programme awarded by Royal Charter and executive coaching – is designed to ensure that delegates:
- Benefit from world-class content, aligned with the unique IoD Competency Framework
- Experience impactful training and facilitation from expert course leaders who are also practising directors
- Gain access to an unrivalled peer network and invaluable IoD resources
- Are able to immediately apply their learning both an individual and organisational context as all programmes are based on current, real-world scenarios.
The IoD 2016/17 professional development portfolio is free and available online. Click on the link below to download a copy and find out more about the IoD training offering.
