Leadership and Management Professional Development Programmes Information Sessions

18 October 2023

Online information sessions for staff who wish to apply for the UCL Leadership and Management pilot Professional Development programmes and their line managers. Sessions are running between 26 October until 20 November 2023.


As part of our commitment to support the professional development of our staff and to align our workforce with future UCL business needs, we are delighted to launch two new Leadership and Management professional development programmes for managers at grade 7 upwards to complement our existing leadership offer. We are particularly keen to encourage applications from our Technical and Academic staff. 

What is it?

Starting in January 2024, these programmes will be delivered by our training provider Corndel and funded through the UCL Apprenticeship Levy. They will provide structured training, allowing you to enhance your career prospects through the development of valuable skills and earn a nationally recognised qualification as well as CMI Chartered Manager or Foundation Chartered Management Status.

Staff wishing to apply for either of the Leadership or Management programmes must attend one of the information sessions. Further details of each of the programmes will be provided so that applicants can select the most appropriate programme and understand the commitment required. The session will also set out the application process and timelines.

The line managers session will outline the crucial role that managers play in the success of the professional development programmes and set out the application process including manager's approval and timelines.

Who is it for?

These programmes are designed for those who work as managers or senior leaders (Academic, Technical and Professional Services) across UCL who wish to deepen their leadership expertise, apply new knowledge skills and behaviours within their current role and contribute to the organisation’s success. More information about the programmes and eligibility is available on the Learner Hub

You and your line manager are advised to review all this information ahead of the information sessions so that you have a good understanding of the content of the programme, the benefits it will bring and the commitment required. 

How do I register?

There will be various sessions for applicants and line managers running from 26 October to 20 November 2023.
