1 Institute of Directors (IoD) Development Programmes Exceptional programmes for exceptional people

2 Leeds Business School holds an exclusive regional franchise to deliver Institute of Director (IoD) programmes and has been a recognised provider of executive governance programmes for over 20 years. Located in a vibrant student city and major European regional business centre, Leeds Business School has an established reputation for excellence in the field of governance and strategic management thinking. This provides the ideal setting for the development of an innovative and challenging programme focusing on the analysis of crucial leadership issues and the provision of practical workable solutions. The benefits of the programme The IoD and Leeds Business School offer a series of unique director programmes, the Certificate in Company Direction and the Diploma in The programmes are specifically designed to help directors improve their personal and professional effectiveness and promote the continued success of their business. The uniqueness of our programme is you! All learning and development sessions are delivered on a structured yet informal basis. They are designed to provide maximum opportunity for directors to participate, discuss and develop issues with their peers. One of the unique features of the programme is that it enables you to develop your network, share ideas and learn from the practical experiences of other likeminded business leaders. Delegates on the programme often come from a very wide spectrum of business backgrounds and bring a plethora of practical experience and knowledge to the programme. This allows you to gain a much broader perspective of critical issues facing management today. Few other programmes can boast such a select and motivated clientele. Centre for the Institute of Directors (IoD) Development Programmes for over 20 years The programmes are made up of short practical courses which offer the latest in business thinking and explore many critical issues facing senior professionals. To meet the more pragmatic needs of business leaders particular attention is paid to mounting legal responsibilities, duties and liabilities that face directors. The programme also provides directors with the essential foundations to go on to achieve the coveted Chartered Director status. IoD Development Programmes

3 The Programme is ideal for: Directors wanting to develop their knowledge and skills before joining the board. Newly appointed directors wishing to establish their role and responsibilities on the board. Experienced directors wanting to bring best practice to their companies and gain up-to-the minute knowledge across a range of key business issues. Aspiring executives Those who have benefited from the course The programme has been seen to address the needs of prospective, newly appointed and experienced directors from all sizes of organisations. Delegates are made up of senior executives, directors and owner managers from public bodies, charities and family businesses through to multi-nationals. This wide diversity is one of the main strengths of the programme. Interested in a single module? If you are interested in attending a single module, perhaps wishing to broaden your experience and understanding of a specialist area rather than acquire a qualification, you can attend the modules individually, without enrolling onto the full programme. Fay Treloar, Head of Operations, Science City York Since joining Science City York as Head of Operations in 2006, Fay Treloar has been responsible for managing the company s marketing, HR, research and finance functions. Recently as part of her continued professional development Fay embarked upon the IoD s Company Direction programme with Leeds Business School. The programme is designed to address critical aspects of the boardroom and provides directors with both the leadership thinking tools and the space to reflect on the workings of the board and as such was an obvious choice for Fay. The IoD s Director Programme at Leeds Business School has been an excellent learning experience for me. Whilst it has required commitment in terms of time out of my business, the knowledge and insight I have gained from the programme and fellow presenters is invaluable. The programme not only provides new and experienced directors with a valuable perspective into the responsibilities faced by a board, but also challenges board members to think creatively about their business and its future. The standard of the modules and the presenters has been really excellent and I have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the Business School programme.

4 IoD DIRECTORS PROGRAMMES For directors who wish to gain a recognised and credible qualification there are two development options, the Certificate in Company Direction and the Diploma in The highly flexible programme delivery enables you to mix and match programme modules to best suit your management development needs and fit into your demanding schedule. CERTIFICATE IN COMPANY DIRECTION This four module programme is designed to provide you with the essential knowledge required by any director. The programme examines key issues such as leadership and governance, interpretation and applications of financial data and the employment of strategic management tools to enhance business performance. DIPLOMA IN COMPANY DIRECTION Integrated with and building on the Certificate Programme, the Diploma Programme focuses on broadening and strengthening the director s understanding of strategic management thinking. Brings together all the elements contained within the previous four courses. Simulates issues experienced by a real Board with the opportunity to put theory into practice. Receive feedback on your own impact and performance as a role-play board reviews and appraises its own impact and effectiveness. IoD Development Programmes

11 CHARTERED DIRECTOR If you are looking to enhance your skills and improve your organisation s performance, Chartered Director is the award you need. The boards of many organisations are now embracing Chartered Director status for their executive and non-executive directors as a benchmark of personal achievement and quest for excellence. Chartered Directors are able to: Appreciate all aspects of effective business leadership and sound corporate governance. Improve the board s effectiveness and their personal contribution. Operate at a strategic and tactical level to establish and sustain growth. Attract interest and support from investors and banks. Demonstrate to shareholders, clients and customers that their organisation is professional. Enhance their career prospects as an executive or non-executive director. The Chartered Director qualification is unique. It is available to directors who have demonstrated the requisite knowledge and experience to act in this professional capacity and is the only award that recognises your capabilities as a director. To register for Chartered Director you must be a full Member or Fellow of the Institute and be registered for or have passed the Diploma examination in You should have: a) 3 full years experience in a director level role for holders of a recognised degree or professional qualification. b) 7 full years experience in a director level role, for those who do not hold a recognised degree or professional qualification. For either period you may have been working in a number of roles at director (or equivalent) level, including nonexecutive positions (NED positions must be consecutive). Your board (or governing body) must comprise three directors (including executive or non-executive directors). Michael Taylor Operations Director, Fosters Bakery Barnsley Young Director of the Year 2008 I was officially appointed as a member of the Board of Governors for Barnsley College in January 2008 and on the same day appointed Chairman of the Board of CenFRA Ltd. The IoD Diploma has given me the knowledge and expertise required of a Director to operate at all levels. I wouldn t have the expertise to chair my CenFRA Board and certainly wouldn t have the knowledge required of a Further Education Governor. It opens your eyes in terms of your governance as a director but also educates you strategically with business acumen to fulfil your role. The IoD Diploma was part of the workforce strategy we have put in place at Fosters Bakery. Every employee has undertaken some form of training from the bottom to the top of our company. All of our employee s will have achieved at least NVQ level 2 by the end of the current year.
