Introduction to our Foundation Programme qualification


Do you want to take the first step on your path to a career as a governance professional or company secretary? Would you like to study on a structured course to help you gain entry to our Chartered Governance Qualifying Programme?

Our Foundation Programme qualification is for students with no prior governance qualifications or experience and will take you on your first steps to becoming Chartered.

The course provides 200 hours of study and a broad introduction to businesses and how they are governed, maintained and financially managed, as well as the laws to which they need to adhere. The knowledge and skills you learn on this course will prepare you for studying Part One of the Qualifying Programme.


The webinar was hosted by Theresa Minnie, Head of Outreach, and Martyn Jones, Head of Student Experience, at The Chartered Governance Institute UK & Ireland. They were joined by:

  • Beth Hargreaves ACG, Lead Examiner for CGI Foundation Programme
