Get involved in governance
With the support of our members and partners, the Institute provides discovery experiences for those thinking about a career in governance.
Gain experience in governance
Whether you are a student, recent graduate or changing careers, our events are designed to give you an insight into what being a governance professional is like at first hand, from the people who are currently working in a governance role.
Our taster experiences are designed to inform and inspire the next generation of governance professionals and to help you start building your network. Participation is also a great way to demonstrate your interest and commitment to potential employers.
There are several different ways for you to develop your understanding of the world of the governance professionals such as:
- Attending one of our Discover Governance webinars or open evenings
- Attending an Annual General Meeting
- Joining an Insight Day virtual or physical event
- Day and week-long work shadowing
- Work experience placements
