Introduction to a Qualification in Charity Law and Governance


Whether you are currently working in charity governance or looking to start your career, having a solid understanding of the laws and regulations surrounding charities in England and Wales is essential to successfully performing the role of a governance professional.

Our Charity Law and Governance qualification is suitable for those who are affected by legal regulation and/or have governance responsibilities in registered, exempt or excepted charities. It is also suitable if you are looking to study a charity finance qualification, providing a broader knowledge base to develop your skills and progress your career within the sector.

Here are a few examples of the types of roles you might be able to apply for with a Charity Law and Governance qualification:

  • secretary/clerk to the board
  • head of finance/finance officer
  • head of governance
  • company secretary/assistant company secretary
  • charity director

The Chartered Governance Institute has been qualifying governance professionals since 1891, and thousands of students have completed their qualifications with us over the years.
