Chartered status is the benchmark for company secretaries and governance professionals. It shows that you have the knowledge, skills and experience to take on a job with significant and wide-ranging responsibilities. In larger organisations, this may be within the secretariat or governance team or as part of a professional services team. In medium and smaller organisations, this may be in a sole governance or company secretarial role.

BPP has been offering the Chartered Governance Institute qualifications for many years and we’ve structured our courses to meet a whole range of study requirements whether via face to face classes or online learning. With our excellent study materials, highly qualified tutors and helpful administrative support, BPP offers you a successful study experience, equipping you for a variety of different career paths and is why we have been a Chartered Governance Institute Recommended Tuition Partner in the Channel Islands for many years.
