Leadership, Management & Governance Development

We offer four distinct training and development programmes designed for each stage of college management, plus a range of governance support. This pathway means that a manager can start their career with the Entry to Management programme with the confidence that we will be there to support them through their progression to senior manager and up to principal and governor levels. Take a look at the programmes below.

Entry to Management - This programme focuses on the challenges faced by first-line managers in the FE sector. From juggling conflicting pressures to managing former peers, this is the ideal introduction to a management role.

Excelling as a College Manager - Building directly on the Entry to Management modules, this programme offers a deeper consideration of what excellent college management looks like, and discusses best practice from the sector.

Senior Leadership Management Development (SLMD) - This highly regarded and flexible course has seen many of our past delegates go on to excel in their organisations. The programme focuses on developing the key skills and personal qualities needed to perform at the highest level as an effective leader.

Masters in FE Sector Management - This formal qualification is designed to help senior managers and principals to develop strategic management skills with a unique focus on further education and skills.

Leadership in Governance - Run as individual development workshops, we offer a wide range of training for clerks and governors to hone their leadership skills.
