Bookings open for Inclusive Leadership programme

Booking is now open for the next three cohorts of the Education and Training Foundation’s (ETF’s) Inclusive Leadership programme.

Aimed at leaders at all levels in FE institutions who can affect change in their organisations and work alongside their senior and middle leaders with an interest in equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI), the programme will support participants to embrace inclusion as a personal priority and equip them with the skills to implement impactful change. It offers a collaborative environment in which challenges, successes and strategies can be shared with peers.

Participants will be equipped with the practical tools and strategies needed to implement an inclusivity action plan, gain a better understanding of how to engage with senior leadership to foster accountability for changes, and learn how to measure, evaluate and communicate the impact of their activity.

All participants will attend an in-person day at the ICC in Birmingham on 15 November 2023, which will run alongside the AoC Annual Conference, providing the opportunity to invite senior leaders from delegates’ provider institutions attending that event to a session to support their learning. Following the day, participants will have access to a series of three online sessions taking place between December and March.

Further details, including dates of online sessions and how to book, are available on the ETF Course Booking site.

Anju Virdee, the ETF’s Head of Leadership Development, said:

“The Inclusive Leadership programme builds on the award-winning work the ETF has already done around equality, diversity and inclusion. Focusing on the practical tools and understanding necessary to drive change, it will help participants make a real difference in their institutions. And, because the programme provides an opportunity to share and collaborate with colleagues from across the sector, it will also help drive sector-wide change across the FE community.”

The Inclusive Leadership programme is part of the ETF’s wider offer for leaders across the FE sector. For further details, visit the leadership development page of the ETF website.

The ETF’s EDI resource – Deeper Thinking and Stronger Action – is available via the online resources and courses page of the site.
