One of our partners, the Insurance Institute of South Africa (IISA), has partnered with the Insurance Sector Education and Training Authority (INSETA) to host an Insurance Director Development Programme to be delivered by the Institute of Directors in Southern Africa.

CN&CO supports education in all its forms, and this is one way for insurance executives to contribute to their own development as well as the upliftment of skills in the industry in general.

“The programme is aimed at developing directorship skills for insurance practitioners who are at executive management level,” says a statement from the IISA. “This will create a pool of skilled directors within the industry and contribute towards mitigating the risk of skills shortage at this level.”


Below is an overview of the modules that will form part of the programme.
