Strategic Leadership Programme

Grow your leadership skills and gain the practical tools and insight required to successfully lead within senior teams

Developing flexible and resilient leaders

Leadership and in particular the development of leaders in uncertain political and financial times has never been so much of a priority to the higher education sector.

The Strategic Leadership Programme aims to build flexible and resilient leaders, capable of delivering large-scale change, by providing opportunities to share insights, work with a support network of peers and reflect on leadership styles and frameworks for life beyond the programme.

The programme develops the practical tools and insight required to successfully lead within a senior team, working collaboratively across and outside the organisation. It will prepare you for the necessary step-change in thinking required when aiming for the Senior Management Team in the near future.

I found the Strategic Leadership Programme invaluable. It has provided me with actionable learning which has translated into a clear difference back on the ground at my institution. The network the programme creates is a powerful learning tool and sectoral support framework which has life beyond the programme itself. The value of this ongoing support is not to be underestimated."

Dr Sam Grogan, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Student Experience), University of Salford
