Self study courses for director development

According to the UK Corporate Governance Code, all directors should regularly update and refresh their skills and knowledge.

For busy executives, keeping up to date can be a chore if it requires setting aside extensive special study times, And it can be counter-productive to try to absorb too much information all at once.

That's why these resources have been designed in chunks of no more than 20 minutes - so that they can be consumed while you take a coffee  break or listen in the car or on the train. And with audio, visual and print elements they appeal to all learning styles. ​

Here you will find a range of resources to support you throughout your career as a director, including due diligence before you accept a seat on a board, induction, foundation training and continuing professional development.

​All products and programmes are covered by our full cancellation/money back guarantee.
