About this event

Good corporate governance is not just the duty of boards. It is the responsibility of everyone in the organisation. With corporate governance high on the public sector agenda, there is a growing need for practical training to increase the knowledge and skills of those charged with making governance work in public bodies.

Who should attend?

The certificate has been designed for staff with responsibility for governance (or aspects of it) throughout the organisation and those who support the board. It will be beneficial for middle and senior (or aspiring) managers – and those who have not received formal or structured training – to support them in fulfilling this important role.

The course is also suitable for new or aspiring board members who have not received formal training, but who would like to quickly increase their knowledge of important governance principles and enhance their skills for the boardroom.

Accreditation and assessment

Upon successful completion of the course and assessment you will be awarded the Certificate in Corporate Governance which is equivalent to NQF Level 4.

Participants will be required to submit a portfolio of evidence and a work-based project. The portfolio will record evidence of learning during each module and aspects of work which substantiate their ability to undertake specific tasks.
