Leadership and management training programme for further education managers

Today’s college managers need to operate at the highest levels to ensure they meet the needs of their organisation and customers – both learners and employers. To support you in ensuring your teams have the skills, knowledge and behaviours they need to do this we developed the City & Guilds Leadership & Management programme for the further education sector. A training programme designed with leading management consultants and trainers Xenonex and KPMG to meet the needs of FE managers, including those moving from practitioner to management positions and support staff managers. 

The programme

Focusing on developing both technical and people skills, the programme:

  • Covers 10 modules that meet the leadership knowledge base identified in the Education Training Foundation’s Leadership Conversation report
  • Is delivered in house, so that it can be built into the busy schedules of your staff
  • Can be tailored to meet the needs of your college

“A truly inspirational management development process that will foster and encourage the technical skills that tomorrows’ FE leaders need”

Dr Lynne Sedgmore CBE, Executive Director, 157 Group
