Leadership programmes 2020-21 - Covid-19

We are currently revising our offer and making decisions on priorities. We hope to be able to communicate details of our 2020-21 leadership offer as soon as possible. In the meantime, please keep an eye on this webpage and on the Academic Staff Development bulletin. Thank you for your patience. 

Becoming a manager or leader within academia has its own unique challenges and so we have developed a programme of specific support in this area which is focused on what academics have told us they need as well as being relevant to the current context in Higher Education.

Our tailored development workshops and programmes encourage leaders and managers to approach leadership with their own authentic style. Becoming an authentic leader is often as much about personal development and self-awareness as it is about developing skills.
