Management, Leadership and Teamwork Development Programme

The UCL Management Programme

We are in the process of reviewing our in-house learning offer on Leadership and Management Development with a view to putting in place an enhanced offer during the course of the 2012/13 academic year. We aim to ensure that this will provide an integrated and progressive framework to support UCL people to develop the leadership and management skills they need at each stage of their career. In the meantime, our existing management and leadership modules which have received positive feedback from learners will continue to be available to be taken on a standalone basis or in combination according to individual need.

Please note that all sessions are free to UCL staff and are likely to book up quickly. Should any places remain within a fortnight of the start of the course, these will be offered to members of other higher education institutions.

If you are grade 8 or above then the UCL Leadership Programme may offer what you are looking for.
