Director Training

Application Process, Costs & Upcoming Dates

Application process

The application process for the Chartered Director Programme is a two-step process:

Step One - Applicants should complete an Expression of Interest Form. Please note that completion of an Expression of Interest Form does not guarantee a place on the Programme, nor does it place any obligation on the applicant to accept a place on the Programme.

Step Two - Following receipt of the Expression of Interest Form, applicants will be contacted by Programme Director, Eileen Gleeson, C Dir, to discuss their application. This completes the process and applicants will then be kept informed of future rounds of place offers for upcoming cohorts.
