ACU has partnered with the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) to develop a Leadership & Accountability of the Supervisor Program tailored to ACU’s operational context.
The program will support you to respond confidently to changes in the sector, understand the organisation of ACU and make sound decisions based on robust evaluation of business needs.
Upon completion of the program, participants can opt to undertake an assessment for the Foundations of Directorship Certificate with the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
ACU Research Ethics Manager Susanna Gorman embarked on the program last year and says she found the first two modules very affirming, and this has prompted her to consider undertaking a Company Directors course in the future.
“The program was led by a very skilled presenter and I appreciated the investment ACU was making in myself and my colleagues to equip us to recognise and deal with the practical, ethical, moral and legal dilemmas that can arise in the work environment," Susanna said.
"I appreciated the way the material was adapted to ACU and I’m glad I made the time to do the course pre-reading, as it was immensely valuable to have the opportunity to engage with these issues while being able to step away from the press of everyday work during the workshop.”
