Apply now for Leadership and Management Academy 22/23 programmes

July 4th, 2022

The Leadership and Management Academy’s programmes give leaders at the university space to develop, reflect, and generate new ideas and connections with a network of colleagues across the university.  

We all know that the pace of change hasn’t relented in the past year so finding the time to learn and develop our leadership and management skill can be difficult, even when it’s clearly never been so important.

Our LMA programmes have been developed to help leaders, managers, and those interested in developing their leadership practice, build the confidence and capability to lead and manage teams.

They are open to all members of UoN staff, these programmes are for everyone at the university, whether you see yourself as a ‘leader’ or not, leadership is something that everyone can do.

You can find out more and apply here: LMA Development Programmes 

By joining one of our programmes, we will help you to be more comfortable not knowing all the answers, help you to understand the wider context in which you lead, and help you to build the personal and professional resources to be able to pass on energy, confidence, trust, and a shared purpose to the people you lead. You’ll get the space, time, and support to focus on your own leadership practice and develop a great network of like-minded colleagues.  

Building on the lessons learned from the past two years, we’ll be delivering the programmes using a hybrid of in person and online methods, and you’ll get the opportunity to take part in workshops, coaching, 360 feedback and support to bring your learning back to your workplace.

The programmes provide focussed development for leaders and managers, at all levels. The Executive Leadership, Senior Leadership, Operational Leadership, Stepping into Leadership and Aspiring Leadership programmes are available and open for application now. You have until the 16 September 2022 to make an application.   

‘LMA courses are a helpful space to see and hear different perspectives/roles/approaches across UoN through sharing experiences and reflections!’ Paul Charman, Deputy Director and LMA programme alumni 

We are also continuing our webinars and bite-sized learning events designed to support leaders and managers at the university. You can find the bite-sized learning offer here, and join colleagues from across the university at live events and via recordings, as we tackle topics such as the essential skills for management, and much more. 

The LMA also continues to offer coaching and mentoring opportunities for all staff, 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.
