Boards that are more diverse tend to be more effective. Therefore, it stands to reason we want this course to be inclusive, and for our students to reflect the broad spectrum of skills and backgrounds that are found across the Australian community.
If you feel our entry requirements present an unreasonable barrier to entry for you, call us on 03 9320 6805 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to accommodate your request and help you achieve your goals.
Please note – Our experience has shown that participants who are currently working with or sitting on a board gain the greatest benefit from this course. If you are not on a board, we encourage you to join one as soon as possible (preferably before your course begins), as this will help you apply the theoretical concepts we cover to real-world contexts.
