Creativity and Innovation (Cancelled)

Creativity is not just a superpower possessed by a select few people; everyone has creative potential! Being creative is about thinking up new ideas, looking at things from a different perspective, and trying something new. It is a skill you can develop with practice and a process you can manage.

At this time in the public sector, we need to think differently, adopt different approaches, work in different ways, seek new solutions and look at things from a new perspective. We need to move away from tradition and custom to radically rethink our approach.

This course aims to provide partici ...

Aspiring to Leadership

In these times of unprecedented change, the need for leadership has never been as important as it is today. Faced with the constraints of austerity and budget cuts, reshaped delivery models, political alliances and community challenges, the future is uncertain. Resourcing our leaders is a key step towards securing our future success.

Making the transition into a leadership role can be a complex and daunting move. So often staff are left ill-equipped and left feeling unprepared for the jump. This programme will focus on giving staff with little or no experience in management/supervisory role ...
