Practical Leadership for University Management

The programme, which is accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) as an Endorsed Award, is aimed at academic and administrative staff with significant responsibility for leading people and managing resources, budgets and projects, and is spread over a nine month period. By the end of the programme delegates are able to: understand the strengths of their own leadership style; apply relevant leadership and management theories and practice to their own situations; communicate effectively, manage performance and motivate staff; better manage processes, resources and projects; and review and plan their own continuing leadership and management development. During the course of the programme the learning is applied in the workplace, supported by peer learning groups, a mentor, a programme coordinator and online information resources.
