What is the Clore Fellowship?


The Clore Fellowship is a programme of leadership development tailored to the individual.

Each year, we award Fellowships to around 25 carefully selected people from across the cultural sector.

In addition to shared learning activities, each Fellow undertakes a customised programme of personal and professional development. The structure of each Fellowship depends on the needs of the individual and includes:

Peer Group Learning:

  • Two residential leadership courses with the Fellowship cohort, held between 22 September and 3 October 2014, and 22 June and 2 July 2015
  • Two intensive group workshops with the Fellowship cohort (focusing on areas such as fundraising and philanthropy; public engagement; financial management and strategic planning) which take place in December 2014 and January 2015
  • Group Project commissioned by a major strategic organisation

An Individual Development Programme including:   

  • 360-Degree Profile
  • Mentoring
  • Coaching
  • Other learning opportunities individually selected by the Fellow in discussion with the Clore Leadership team, such as courses and conferences
  • Three-month placement in a UK organisation very different from the Fellow’s usual working environment, taking place between January and July 2015
  • The production of an original article about an aspect of leadership which the Fellow has researched and which may be published on the Clore Leadership Programme website, helping to stimulate debate about leadership
  • The option of submitting a proposal for a three-month research project, supervised by a Higher Education Institute based in the UK, which the Fellow would undertake after he/she has completed the rest of the fellowship programme and which would be funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council
  • Opportunities to remain engaged with the Programme on completion of the Fellowship, through events, Clore Plus, online networks and discussion
