Calling chief execs and senior leaders – last chance for free leadership development programme

Last call for places on a free leadership development programme aimed at senior leaders in the social welfare law sector.

Applications must be in by close of Monday, May 16 for the course which is being run by the Cass Centre for Charity Effectiveness. The course is being funded both by the Baring foundation and the John Paul Getty charitable trust and is a 12 month programme for up to 60 senior leaders and chief executives across England and Wales.

According to James Barrett, a consultant for the Cass Business School, the programme has been devised to have equip senior staff ‘with the specific key qualities and competencies identified for resilient leaders in the sector; with the expertise to develop innovative, sustainable organisations; and with a collaborative and externally-facing mind-set that enables leaders to make links across the Sector, sharply focused on the needs of your beneficiaries’. ‘Because this programme must be a catalyst for positive change across the wider advice sector, it has been specifically designed for those with the greatest influence – people at the top of their organisations in chief executive and senior leader positions – who are actively supported by their organisations to participate fully in the programme,’ he says.
