Virtual Signatory Skills
Signatory Skills has gone virtual!!
Signatories in 2020 need to be equipped to identify and manage risk in an era of innovation, technological advancement and real-world challenges. Our new revised signatory skills course is designed to equip new and existing signatories for the new decade.
The course has been split into two 2 day workshops to make it easier to balance work priorities and development time. Each session is followed by a 1:1 telephone coaching session to allow you to focus on individual priorities and to put your learning into practice.
This course focuses on the risk-management and decision-making skills needed by Signatories. Over the workshop days, delegates will work with topics that cover the breadth of the Code to ensure they develop the knowledge and skills needed as a Registered Signatory.
Despite the workshop being virtual, still expect discussion, case examples and mock materials. All delegates receive a complimentary copy of “The Code Explained”, written by our Managing Director, Steve Gray.
Experienced Reviewers, aspiring signatories
We recommend that those wishing to understand the detailed technical review of promotional claims, etc, attend our three module reviewer course prior to embarking on Signatory Skills.
Other Development Ideas
Having completed the 4-day Signatory course, delegates may wish to then undertake our scenario based Signatory Viva Assessment (non-mandatory) to obtain feedback on areas for ongoing development.
Additional coaching support is available for new signatories who are looking for extra support or the option to ask project based queries.
