Launching our 2020 Experienced Leader Programme

We are delighted to launch our 2020 Experienced Leader Programme for social leaders who aim to boost their leadership skills and make a lasting difference within the sector.

The one-year programme, starting in January, is open to individuals with six or more years’ experience as a social sector leader. Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) has pledged support for six funded Specialist Fellowships on the programme.

The programme is for those who have ambition to drive social change in their communities and organisations. It helps build social leadership capabilities, confidence, effectiveness, self-awareness, resilience and overall impact through working with others. The programme comprises a number of activities including executive coaching, action learning and a secondment.

Whilst the Experienced Leader Programme is open to all social sector leaders, the six FiMT-funded Fellowships are only open to those in the Armed Forces and Service Charities sector. Building on five successful years of partnership between Clore Social Leadership and FiMT, the aim is to promote leadership within and connections between the military and social sectors.

As mentioned by Anna Wright, CEO of Naval Families Federation and Clore Social Leadership Fellow, “I found [the Experienced Leader Programme] to be really inspiring and enjoyable. I met some wonderful people also in leadership roles but operating in different spheres to the military charity sector. It was fascinating and very informative to hear how things are done differently. My two deputies participated in [another Clore Social Leadership Programme]. I believe that we have all ‘grown’, as a result, to the benefit of our organisation. We are certainly more outward-looking and more collaborative with other organisations. I believe we are more ambitious in terms of setting goals that will benefit our beneficiaries.”

Shaks Ghosh CBE, Chief Executive of Clore Social Leadership, said: “We are delighted to announce our continued partnership with Forces in Mind Trust to support our 2020 Experienced Leader Programme. Through investing in the development of their leaders, the Armed Forces and Service Charities sector highlights the importance of like-minded organisations working together to address shared challenges. We look forward to working with the new cohort of social leaders in 2020.”

Ray Lock CBE, Chief Executive of Forces in Mind Trust, said: ““We are delighted to continue to support Clore Social Leadership’s Experienced Leader Programme. We have seen how the programme has continued to deliver excellent results which have benefited the Fellows, their respective organisations and most importantly, the people with whom they work, namely the Armed Forces Community. This is a unique funding model that enables the sub-sector to mutually support individual organisations to become collectively stronger. It’s another example of the collaboration between the Armed Forces charities which is at the forefront of civil society. By investing in the leaders of today, we are increasing the capability of the military and social sectors to make lasting change.”
