This module sets the foundation for the rest of the certificate. It is taken by students completing all of the Institute’s sector qualifications. This will give students an in-depth grounding in the principles of good governance. By completing this module, students will:

  • Understand the key principles and theories of governance.
  • Analyse the different models and approaches to governance.
  • Examine the mechanisms for accountability, transparency, and participation in governance.
  • Identify the challenges of governance and their impact on development.
  • Develop strategies to address the challenges of governance.
  • Demonstrate the basic skillset for the application and working of Governance

The module is an online learning component of a larger self-paced programme with e-learning content, self-assessments, knowledge check quizzes, real-world examples (practical case studies) and other online resources. It will also be supported by a schedule of live webinars with a tutor, group discussions and feedback on discussions and assessments.

The programme content is delivered through an online learning platform, where you can interact with other students. The webinars are live events but will also reside as an archived recorded resource.

It is an intensive module. It is estimated that completion of the module will require 40-50 hours of self-study, including webinars.
