The Institute of Directors (IoD) was founded in 1903 in London and within three years we were awarded a Royal Charter to support, represent and set standards for business leaders nationwide. We are the oldest business membership organisation in the world, and we have about 20,000 members, including over 3,000 international members. We are also the only organisation that awards ‘Chartered Directors’ across the world.

We would like to share with you some details on our International Role of the Director and the Board course which is one of the most popular modules that make up our Certificate in Company Direction.

Delivering an essential understanding of the board’s role in corporate governance and risk management, this introduction to the duties and legal responsibilities of a director will enable you to tackle the challenges of the boardroom with fresh confidence and progress your career to the next level.

By attending this course, you will have the confidence to:

  • Recognise the key duties, roles and legal responsibilities of a modern director
  • Understand the essential differences between direction, management and ownership
  • Examine the board’s role in corporate governance and learn how to improve board effectiveness
