The programme seeks to nurture individual leadership talent, but also wishes to equip leaders with the expertise to develop innovative, sustainable organisations, and to be a catalyst for positive change across the wider sector. It will offer a set of rich learning opportunities, intended to take participants out of the work place and provide a rare opportunity for immersion in new ideas and experiences to stretch leadership thinking.
The programme is for those who are at the top of their organisations with the greatest influence:
- For chief executives (i.e. the most senior employees who are directly accountable to their boards), and senior leaders (i.e. those who report to chief executives) who manage teams of staff.
- Who work in voluntary sector organisations that can demonstrate a history & commitment to the provision of independent advice on social welfare law, and that employ a lawyer or someone undertaking complex legal case work.
- From a range of lived experiences and backgrounds, from a broad range of types and sizes of organisation across England & Wales.
This programme starts late May 2017 and is free to attend, with accommodation and national travel also covered.
The deadline for applications is 13 April 2017.
