Our Vision and Values will will help us to achieve our mission as set out below.
The association will promote the role of the profession with a view to ensurirng that employers, students and regulatory bodies are familiar with the role and importance of governance practitioners. We will aim to achieve a leading status, ensuring that we are the main resource for all the sectors that rely on these professionals. The association will serve specific sectors and the educational programme will include specific modules for practitioners working in large corporate organisations, government, SMEs, financial service organisations, the IT sector and the Third Sector. We will be a leading voice in the area of governance.
We will achieve our objectives by becoming the ‘first choice support organisation for professionals and practitioners working in governance’, and the standard bearer for employers looking for employees working in this area. We will establish our courses as the recommended course for anyone who wants to complement their overall role with a specific governance qualification. We will help promote and establish the profession, ‘Governance Practitioner’, within the UK initially, and then globally.
