Accelerated Management Development Programme
Professional Development Programme

Participants: This programme is for UCL staff grades 7 and above.

Pre-requisites: Please review the UCL Core Behaviours Framework.

The Accelerated Management Development Programme offers training support for existing managers and those with managerial aspirations within UCL with the overall aim of helping to better understand the manager’s role and be able to apply key managerial skills.

The Programme is designed to focus on the key management skills needed. It will enhance managers’ performance management capabilities within a matrix environment and increase their capabilities to use analytical, diagnostic, solution and reflection tools to improve workplace performance.
