Events and Training

We host a variety of events for members and external parties. Details of scheduled member events are located inside the members’ portal.

Education and CPD

Quality education and training courses form a central part of our approach to ensuring our INEDs are equipped to be the best skilled and most up to date in the UK. The Association is developing a market leading modular, post graduate qualification to acknowledge the increasing complexity of doing business within the UK and the risk faced by directors. This course is being developed in discussion with our members in order to tailor it specifically to member needs, being originally based upon collaborative content developed with the Business School of a major UK University.

We also offer half and full day continuing professional development (“CPD”) courses tailored to the risks in different sectors of business within the UK.

Included within our standard offering for members is an element of face to face mentoring, at no additional cost. We aim to offer, on average, 50 sessions of 45 minutes duration each month on a first-come-first-served basis.

AiNED members receive discounts on all of our courses, as well as priority booking. Some of our courses are unavailable to the general public, being exclusively for members. Networking events are generally free to attend for members.
