The University of Huddersfield’s Sir George Buckley Leadership Centre officially launched on 19th January at a virtual launch event attended by 120 local and regional businesses and organisations, as well as Sir George Buckley who dialled in from the US.
Operating out of the 3M BIC, the Sir George Buckley Leadership Centre will bring together the best of global research expertise from the Huddersfield Business School with practical hands-on learning from experienced facilitators skilled at developing leaders.
Did you miss out on the launch event and would like to find out more information about the leadership programmes available at the Sir George Buckley Leadership Centre? Register your place here for a virtual briefing session taking place on Monday 8th February.
The programmes will be accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and are aimed at companies and public sector organisations interested in bringing together current and future leaders to learn from leadership development specialists and equip them for the challenges ahead.
The Sir George Buckley Leadership Centre will offer the following flagship programmes over 9-12 months from April 2021:
- CMI Level 5 in Management and Leadership
This programme is ideal for experienced team or department managers and aspiring leaders. It has been designed to hone leadership skills to help inspire, develop, and motivate teams, from managing conflict to coaching and mentoring.
- CMI Level 7 in Strategic Leadership
This programme is best suited to directors and senior leaders with more strategic responsibilities. It is designed to explore leadership skills and create stronger leaders that can think more strategically and innovatively.
Sue Alderson, Programme Director of the new Centre, said:
“Due to the pandemic, programmes will run virtually initially and then will move back to a blend of physical sessions run from the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre in Huddersfield, as well as online learning, once restrictions allow this to be done safely. We hope to run several cohorts of leadership and management programmes each year, as well as adding new provision and bespoke programmes subject to demand.”
