The Wessex Group's Leadership Programmes are prestigious and highly valued by those that have taken part in past training.  It is expected that applications to take part in the programmes will be from staff who:

  • have demonstrated commitment to their personal and career development
  • are interested in furthering their career in sixth form colleges
  • have been recommended for leadership development by managers who recognise their potential
  • are interested in improving the impact that they have on the success of their college
  • are committed to attending all modules of their programme.   Unfortunately, those unable to attend the first sessions will forfeit their places on the rest of the programme as well as the fee if their place cannot be filled.

Wessex Group colleges will be expected to support delegates by ensuring that they are up to date on current college policies and strategy; that they have access to materials required throughout the programmes and that they are able to attend each module.
