Leadership development programmes 2021-2022

Leaders play a pivotal role in influencing the environment and the dynamics that individuals and teams work within. Now more than ever, we need leaders to be compassionate, strive to understand the challenges of their teams, and respond in ways that promote inclusion.

What can you expect from the programme structure?

The leadership development programmes are run using a blended learning model with sessions being facilitated both face-to-face and online (government guidelines allowing). As well as being of a high quality, they will be cost effective and time efficient.

What we want our leadership development offer to enable

Integral to sustaining leadership is structured support, a safe place to share learning with peers and an opportunity to consider new ways and approaches.

Leadership development programmes

The three leadership programmes will focus on different aspects of leadership and will be open to all Academic and Professional Service staff. They will run alongside each other and share three plenary sessions which will cover leadership topics that are key to everyone and will be led by an external speaker.

Am recommending the programme to others, most definitely. It is one of the best training things I have taken part it. Definitely the open and explorative approach that I was looking for.

big big thank you - this programme by far exceeded my expectations and I learnt so much about myself (not just about leadership) (plus it was a great best practice to see how effective online exchanges can be done..)

Leading Collaborative Teams participant 2020-21

This has been a tremendous opportunity for me, and I am extremely grateful to have had it. If I continue to implement what I have learned, it has the potential to transform the way I work and to enable me, finally, to be a real leader.
