The Diploma of Business (Governance) – BSB50715

For too long, not-for-profit board members and their supporters have put up with a second-rate reputation and second-rate education. Not anymore.

This nationally recognised qualification will provide students with practical knowledge and skills relating to governance and will develop increased confidence to ensure they make a valued contribution as a member of a board or as a co-ordinator of quality governance. It’s designed specifically for Australian not-for-profit board/committee members, and the CEOs, managers and senior staff who work alongside them.

This course is highly recommended for those individuals seeking to develop their skills around leading, monitoring and guiding the activities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, as well as enhancing their understanding of legal and financial obligations to the wider community and funding bodies.

The training and assessment of this course are delivered by the Institute of Community Directors, an Our Community enterprise, in alliance with Victorian TAFE Institute – Federation Training.

Our alliance with Federation Training ensures the academic rigour required for a qualification of this level and provides wonderful opportunities for participants to enjoy enhanced employment opportunities, access to higher-level governance roles, and pathways to further study nationally and overseas.

In a nod to the importance of technology to today’s board members, Diploma participants also have access to the Institute of Community Directors Australia’s extensive suite of online governance resources, both through a pre-loaded iPad (provided as part of the course) and full access to the Institute of Community Directors website through a special membership offering for all enrollees.
