Applications open for Leadership and Management 2020/21 core programmes

August 3rd, 2020

Applications for the 2020/21 Leadership and Management core programmes are now open.

COVID-19 has impacted every aspect of our lives and colleagues across the University continue to navigate through uncertainty and complex change. This means that leadership and management skills have never been more important and many leaders and managers have faced personal and professional demands that they have never experienced before.

The LMA programmes have been developed to help leaders and managers build the confidence and capability to lead and manage teams through these difficult times and beyond. Joining one of the programmes will help you to be more comfortable not knowing all the answers, help you to understand the wider context in which you lead and build the personal and professional resources to be able to pass on energy, confidence, trust and a shared purpose to the people you lead.

The core programmes can provide you with the space, time and support to focus on your own leadership practice and develop a great network of like-minded colleagues.

The delivery of these programmes has been adapted to the times we’re in, so you’ll access the offer online via Microsoft Teams and other tools. As part of each programme you’ll take part in workshops, coaching, 360 feedback and support to bring your learning back to your workplace.

The core programmes provide focused development for leaders and managers, at all levels. The Executive Leadership, Senior Leadership, Operational Leadership and Stepping into Leadership are available and open for application now. The deadline for applications is Sunday 20 September 2020.

You can find out more and apply at the LMA Development Programmes [Moodle log-in required] pages.

Webinars designed to support leaders and managers through COVID-19 are also continuing to be run. These have been created in response to specific University, faculty, school and departmental needs. You can access the webinars and join colleagues from across the University as topics such as staying connected, returning to campus and much more are tackled.

The LMA also continues to offer coaching and mentoring opportunities for all staff, along with guidance on job shadowing for those who wish to develop their skills and/or career.

You can find a wide range of online resources on the LMA Hub that give you the opportunity to develop at a time and pace that suits you.  These include specially selected articles, books, videos, diagnostics and interactive tools that can help you with your development.

However you choose to develop your leadership practice, the Leadership and Management team are here to support you.

Is this programme still running. If so, I would like some of my team to get some leadership training. Is this right for any of them?
