Who is this for?

Leaders and managers of small and medium-sized organisations. The programme is particularly relevant to individuals without a formal leadership and management qualification who are looking for a practical and comprehensive introduction to key leadership and management theories, models, frameworks, tools, techniques and approaches. The programme is an excellent platform from which some may wish to explore formal qualifications.

How is the programme structured?

  • Next Generation comprises 8 whole days of training, one day per month, starting in November 2018.

Three core themes:

  • Managing Self: including values, beliefs and world views, communication, networking, attitudes and behaviour, personal development planning, time management, assertiveness and delegation.
  • Leading and managing others: including teams, recruitment, selection and development, leadership and management, influencing and persuading, motivation and appraisal.
  • Working together: including vision and strategy, change management, project management, stakeholder management, evaluation.
  • Part of Day 1 will involve refining the programme content to meet the needs and interests of the group.
  • Part of Day 8 will involve planning ‘Next Steps’ for delegates.
  • Workshops will combine different learning tools and processes including workbooks, case studies, guest speakers, assessment tools and other diagnostics, access to models and theories, audio visual material and reading lists. There will be opportunity to progress learning and thinking between workshops. Delegates will also provide a learning resource for each other with opportunities for networking, discussion and practice together.
  • Whilst the programme is unaccredited, learning acquired can count towards an ILM (Institute of Leadership and Management) qualification for those looking to progress onto an accredited programme.
