The IoD have recently launched for members their new cutting-edge digital platform that puts you in control of your learning, offering IoD members, course delegates and the wider business community an opportunity to learn, benchmark and connect on the go with the IoD Academy app and website.

Learn wherever and whenever you want with the Digital Academy. Create your very own, continuous professional development (CPD) plan using the IoD Academy’s self-assessment tool so you’ll know what you’ll need in order to achieve your goals, focus on the areas important to you and follow your progress on the CPD tracker. Alongside suites of learning to accompany your training course, IoD members can enjoy unlimited access to our powerful learning tools including bite-sized CPD content, articles, podcasts, webinars and videos all mapped to the Director Competency Framework.
