The programme covers the key areas of governance, finance, strategy and leadership providing you with a foundation in effective directorship:
- An in-depth view of the role, responsibilities and legal duties of a director
- An understanding of the characteristics of an effective board
- Sound knowledge of financial terms and concepts
- The issues and processes associated with formulating strategic business plans and achieving strategic leadership
The Diploma in Company Direction is an opportunity to put into practice the knowledge gained from the Certificate in a realistic and safe environment. It encourages peer-group support, challenge and stimulation, mirroring in many ways the operation of a board.
Challenge and utilise the knowledge gained from your experience as a director in an applied and dynamic way with the IoD Diploma in Company Direction Level 11 (SCQF) qualification.
By replicating the issues of a 'real' organisation, you will gain hands-on experience that will not only enable you to achieve a world-class qualification, but also to make a significant impact on your board's effectiveness.
You will receive feedback on your own performance as a board member and return to your organisation ready to tackle future challenges with greater expertise and confidence
