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.

Our approach will be a logical step by step build up with each day split into separate sections. Therefore it is vital that delegates attend all four sessions:

Module 1 (Day 1): You and the Organisation in Context
Module 2 (Day 2): Operating with your Team
Module 3 (Day 3): Improving Self
Module 4 (Day 4): Leadership Communication

The programme consists of four one-day modules held either as:

  • two day sessions over a eight week period
  • or

  • one day sessions over a eight week period
