We hold an exclusive regional franchise to deliver Institute of Director (IoD) programmes and have been a recognised provider of executive governance programmes for over 20 years, since 1991.

The IoD programmes are ideal for directors, senior executives, entrepreneurs, owner managers and for those who aspire to work at a strategic boardroom level in the private, public or not for profit sectors. For directors wishing to build their qualification further, the IoD Certificate and Diploma in Company direction can be used to progress to become a Chartered Director and gain fast track access on the MSc in Executive Leadership.
