Programme Format & Content


The Format

The six-month course includes 17 days of programmed content delivered in three residential based phases and own research between  Phase 1 and Phase 3. 

The delivery format is a successful model proven to maximise learning outcomes and group cohesion. It provides participants with dedicated blocks of focused time away from distractions of home and work to develop and practice the tools & skills introduced. The time spent together also allows time during the delivery and after hours to develop and build a strong group bond and trust. At the end of the course is a diverse, trusted team of support people to encourage and facilitate long term leadership goals.

 

The Content 

Our goal is to develop confidence, knowledge and critical thinking in our participants. Discussions and debate are essential elements of the course content with presenters and between each other.

Each day there is a review session which pulls together the threads and key discussions points to consolidate learnings.
