How does it work?
Modular - The programme takes place over seven months, allowing you to develop within your work schedule.
Experience based - You will be working in a small team of participants from different backgrounds and with different expertise, to deliver an agreed project for a not-for-profit organisation.
On-going support - Your team will be supported throughout the project. You will also benefit from one-to-one coaching, communications training and personal development.

FLP has been a brilliant programme that I would recommend to all emerging leaders. It has given me confidence in my own leadership and influencing skills that I will utilise in my career.
