Deadline for applications: 10am on Monday 8 April 2019

The Extend Leadership Programme is open to applicants working in learning and education roles in the arts and cultural sectors.

The Programme enables mid-career professionals to:

  • Acquire and apply leadership skills, working with a cohort of peers from across England, Wales and Scotland.
  • Engage in intensive residentials and to explore aspects of leadership through group projects, mentoring and personal development planning
  • Gain opportunities to explore and reflect upon their current practice, to meet with inspiring leaders in the sector, to develop their own projects and to plan for the future.

Extend is informed by a commitment to empowering education and learning professionals so that they are able to influence the sector’s development and help to ensure that learning is embedded in arts and cultural organisations. Now in its ninth year, more than 100 colleagues have graduated from the Programme from across the arts and cultural sectors.

‘This is the first course I have been on where I have really concentrated and listened to everything. Each part has taught me many things about leadership - knowledge that I will be able to take with me throughout my career.’
