Alongside Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT), Cobseo The Confederation of Service Charities, we are delighted to announce details of the 23 successful emerging leaders who will take part in ‘Clore6: Cobseo’, a new leadership development programme for the Service charities sector.
The participants come from a wide variety of charities and include: Glen Art, Housing Options Scotland, the Naval Families Federation, Stoll and the Royal British Legion. All participants will have the opportunity to utilise their applied learnings in team challenges to immediately transfer the skills they gain from the programme back into their organisations.
‘Clore6: Cobseo’ is a six-month programme, we designed in partnership with Cobseo, and Forces in Mind Trust, who are providing the programme’s core funding. Sector organisations were invited to nominate their future leaders, working to promote the welfare and general interests of the Armed Forces Community.
Aimed at emerging leaders in the Service charities sector, ‘Clore6: Cobseo’ seeks to develop a cadre of leaders to provide robust and effective leadership for their organisations and sector. The programme is built around Clore Social Leadership’s Social Leaders’ Capabilities Framework, which illustrates the attributes, behaviours and skills for successful leadership.
Air Vice-Marshal Ray Lock CBE, Chief Executive of Forces in Mind Trust and Executive Committee member of Cobseo said, 'The 23 participants of this exciting new programme have a fantastic opportunity to develop their leadership potential. By funding the core costs of the project, Forces in Mind Trust has made the programme affordable for all sizes of Service charities, demonstrating our commitment to investing in innovative approaches that will enhance the effectiveness of the sector.
'The quality of the applications received was exceptionally high, and I look forward to seeing how the participants develop during the programme.'
Our CEO Shaks Ghosh commented, 'This investment in leadership means that Service charities will have fantastic future leaders who will ensure their organisations thrive in times of rapid change within the social sector, and beyond.'
This is the third Clore6 programme following a successful pilot programme for emerging leaders from the Youth Sectorwhich completed in March 2017, and a Clore6 Open programme for leaders from the wider social sector which is currently running. Upon successful completion of the Clore6 programmes, participants will join Clore Social Leadership’s network of Fellows.
