Applications are now open for the 2nd cohort of the Aspiring to Be new leaders programme and will now close on Tuesday 7 May 2019. ** New, extended, deadline**
The programme is aimed at staff at all levels within the Trust who are looking to take their first steps into leadership.
The programme will last for 12 months and will equip aspirant leaders with the knowledge they need to be a first line leader. It will include workshops, coaching sessions, work-shadowing etc. over a total of approx. 15 days throughout the year. Candidates will also be expected to undertake some reading at home and some written reflection on their learning as part of the overall programme. This will not be substantial, (estimated 10 hours over the year) but will be an important part of the learning programme.
Acceptance onto the training programme is subject to a three stage selection process; an application form, 360 appraisal and a one day assessment centre. Assessment centres dates are set for 26 – 28 June and 1-3 July 2019, and applicants should save these dates in their diary until such time as their specific date is allocated.
Acceptance will also be subject to your line manager’s agreement to release you from your service to attend programmed events.
