Future Leaders Programme

UCL Quad

UCL is committed to training and supporting academic leaders of exceptional potential. To this end the SLMS Academic Careers Office, together with UCL Organisational DevelopmentĀ  have designed the SLMS Future Leaders Programme.

Launching in October 2013, we will provide bespoke academic leadership training delivered by a world-class faculty to two successive cohorts of sixteen individuals selected from across the School of Life and Medical Sciences on the basis of their exceptional leadership potential.

All participants will also have the opportunity to lead a short management and leadership project within the School, in order not only to learn about leadership but to participate in helping the School reach its ambitious goals.

The deadline for expressions of interest to the ACO is 1st August 2013.

The scheme demands the support and commitment of your Institute/Division. The ACO is only asking for expressions of interest. Institutes will be asked to rank applicants. Those not selected for the initial cohort can then be considered for subsequent cohorts or on alternate courses to support development.
