Governance Professionals' Induction and Mentoring Programme (Code: C1049)

The induction programme will seek to provide standardisation to the governance professional's role, by equipping participants with guidance on what their role is and what the role of governance is, what is expected of them and how this role should develop over a period of time. It will allow for sharing best practice and learning from others more experienced in the sector to ensure that this role, which can feel isolated, benefits from being part of a wider community. The induction will recognise the variety of backgrounds and skills that new governance professionals bring to the role.

Pricing options

The programme costs £325 and includes 3.5 days of training, mentoring support and an additional half day virtual EDI workshop.
