"It has been a much deeper experience that I expected. I have learned so much about inner strength and resilience and staying true to my core values and beliefs. It has been inspiring to be surrounded by such talented and brilliant peers, and to hear from established and successful leaders."

The next Emerging Leaders Course takes place 11-16 October, 2015 at Eynsham Hall, Oxfordshire.

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS 5PM, FRIDAY 15TH MAY, 2015

What is the Clore Emerging Leaders Course?

An intense, five-day residential course providing you with the essential knowledge and skills needed to take the next steps as an emerging cultural leader. Since 2011 we have run five Emerging Leaders courses aimed at people in the early stages of their careers. You can read what people have said about the course here.

Who can apply?

Ambitious, creative individuals who aspire to lead and make a difference to the cultural sector and the world at large. You should have two to five years' paid experience in the arts, museums, or libraries sector and some experience of initiating and/or managing projects. The majority of participants are between the ages of 21 and 30. Applicants should be able to demonstrate a genuine desire to lead. The course is suitable for those working for organisations, freelance artists and independents. We are looking for applicants from as wide as possible a range of backgrounds and specialisms, and there are a number of attributes we look for in a potential leader.

How will I learn?

The course provides a supportive environment in which participants are given an introduction to leadership development and the opportunity to challenge themselves and their perception of what leadership is.

We understand that people learn in different ways and the course reflects this. It blends practical skills and tools, real-life examples and individual and group learning. There are also opportunities to listen to cultural leaders talk about their experiences of leadership, and what they have learned along the way. Sharing and learning from each other is strongly encouraged.

What will I learn?

Sessions are led by experts from across the cultural and corporate sector who are visionary leaders, thinkers, entrepreneurs, artists, researchers and academics. The evenings are taken up by talks from leaders who share their personal and professional journeys through the sector and illustrate different models of leadership.

Our exact programme varies from course to course but for reference, here are some examples of sessions from previous Emerging Leaders courses: Managing & Influencing People, Presentation, Governance, Coaching, Lobbying and Communications. 

What difference will the course make to you?
“The Emerging Leaders Course is life-changing!”  Eleanor Pulfer

By attending the course you will:

  • Grow in confidence around your own leadership ability 
  • Increase your career motivation
  • Understand different leadership styles better 
  • Gain greater self-awareness
  • Acquire some practical tools and skills 
  • Build a stronger support network of fellow emerging leaders to share experiences with and brainstorm problems together

How much does it cost?

Most places on the Clore Emerging Leaders course cost £500 + VAT. These are subsidised places, with the full cost is £2,000 +VAT. You are eligible for a subsidised place if you work in the arts and museums or libraries sector in England, and are committed to developing your career as a cultural leader in England (supported by Arts Council England through a commissioned grant to develop resilient leadership).

We are able to offer a number of bursaries for this course to applicants based in the UK.

We actively encourage applications from disabled emerging leaders as they are underrepresented in our courses and the cultural sector at large.

As our recent Scoping Survey indicated, cost is a key barrier to disabled people accessing leadership training therefore the Clore Leadership Programme will waive the course fee for Disabled emerging leaders from England who successfully secure a place on the Emerging Leaders Course. Successful participants will only be required to cover their travel to and from the course. For a working definition of disability please refer to Arts Council England's Disability Equality Scheme report.
