Chartered Governance Qualifying Programme
The Chartered Governance Qualifying Programme is the benchmark qualification for governance professionals. It builds a unique breadth of technical skills that equip you for a varied career at board level and is the most common route to Chartered status (GradCG), validating your knowledge with an internationally respected accreditation.
Governance Professionals and Chartered Secretaries hold a range of jobs such as Corporate Counsel, Company Secretary, or Head of Governance, Risk and Compliance. What unites them is knowledge of legal and regulatory requirements, understanding of corporate strategy and structures, and the skills to support and advise, enabling directors and the board to make the right decisions.
There are many routes through the qualifying programme according to your needs and educational and occupational background. In the Fast track route for example, a professional accountant or lawyer with 5+ years of relevant experience will be eligible for exemptions and may achieve accreditation within one year.
A range of flexible study methods are available, to match each individual’s personal and professional schedule. Online tuition is delivered by the Preferred Tuition Partner of ICSA, BPP Professional Education. BPP can offer you a successful ICSA study experience, equipping you for a variety of different career paths.
