Professionalising the Boardroom

Are YOU qualified to lead?

The Institute of Directors (“IoD”) sets the standards for leadership in the UK and Ireland.  Our highly acclaimed Chartered Director Programme is designed to ensure that the directors of today and tomorrow from all sectors can contribute effectively to major organisation-wide decisions. With a current all-Ireland annual demand for around 100 places, we are clearly the leader in our market segment – and all 5 current cohorts were oversubscribed.

 We offer 12½ days of face-to-face tuition over nine months including five two-day residentials on the themes of

 Role of the Director and the Board

Strategy and Marketing


Leadership and Change

Developing Board Performance

 Our programme leads to the IoD Certificate (“Cert IoD”) and Diploma (“Dip IoD”) – afterwards we help many go on to become Chartered Directors – the “gold standard” for professional directors in the UK and Ireland and increasingly adopted worldwide.

 We draw upon the IoD’s unrivalled resources – approved facilitators who work internationally and understand the implementation issues rather than simply the theory, state-of-the-art programme materials and highly accessible on-line support. The modules are delivered in an engaging, enjoyable style. Aimed at busy people there are no tedious assignments or dissertations. There are however two exams, for which our delegates are well-prepared, consistently excelling in terms of both pass-rate and number of Distinctions. The opportunities for networking and peer learning, during the programme and in our local Alumni group, feature highly in delegate feedback.

 The next Northern Ireland programme starts on 22/23 Sept 2014 and finishes in June 2015. If the local dates for a particular session do not suit we have alternatives in Dublin. Some financial support towards fees may be available.
