Leadership and Management Academy programmes: open for applications

July 3rd, 2023

We all need Leadership skills, and you can develop them now with the Leadership and Management Academy.

Leadership doesn’t come from a select few people at the university. It’s a quality that we all have, and we all need, in our complex and ever-changing world.

Leadership doesn’t come out fully formed when we need it either, it needs to be developed, nurtured, and reflected upon. To help us all with this we are thrilled to open our Leadership and Management Academy programmes for applications. 

By joining one of our programmes, you’ll be getting a highly practical, immersive experience that challenges you to embrace uncertainty, grow your knowledge of yourself and your ways of leading, and understand the bigger picture of your leadership and management role.

We’ll arm you with adaptable tools and resources you need to lead with energy and confidence, build trust, and create a shared sense of purpose with your teams.  

The programmes offer much more than just knowledge and skills. They provide you with the space, time, and support to focus on your own leadership practice. You’ll also forge connections with like-minded colleagues, building a network of ambitious individuals all working to be better leaders and managers at the university. 

There’s a programme to suit you whatever stage of your career you’re at, from ‘just’ leading yourself (there’s a real skill to this) right up to executive level leading faculties and departments,  and anywhere in between.

To find out more and identify the programme that’s right for you (choosing from Executive Leadership, Senior Leadership, Operational Leadership, Stepping into Leadership and Aspiring Leadership) go to the Leadership and Management Academy programme pages.

Applications are open until September 15 2023. 

Other ways to develop 

If a programme isn’t right for you right now don’t worry, that’s why we offer many more resources, development tools and events to support you. Here’s what’s on offer:  

  • You can join us for informative webinars and bite-sized learning events, where you’ll connect with colleagues from across the university. With a mix of content picking up the emergent needs of the institution and essential skills, you can access live events and recordings, and a new programme of sessions will be launching in September. 
  • We provide coaching and mentoring opportunities for all staff. No matter what stage of your career or what you need, we can match you with a coach or mentor to help you drive your development and find the solutions to the challenges you face.  
  • Discover a wealth of online resources on the LMA Learning and Resources pages, specially curated to facilitate your development. Explore thought-provoking articles, engaging videos, diagnostic tools, and interactive resources that help you to grow at your own pace.   

No matter which path you choose to develop your leadership practice, we’re here to support you every step of the way.

Your growth and development is key to the success of the university, and we are committed to helping you excel on this transformative journey of self-discovery. 

Unlock your true leadership potential today. Apply now for the LMA Development Programmes and become the leader you aspire to be.
