2014/15 International Fellowships on the Clore Leadership Programme

The Clore Leadership Programme offers a number of International Fellowships to exceptional individuals from prioritised countries outside the UK.

The successful candidates will be based in the UK for a period of approximately four months spread over two periods: for between two and four weeks in September/October 2014, which will include the first residential leadership course, 22 September to 3 October 2014 and for approximately three months culminating in the second residential leadership course 22 June to 2 July 2015.  The International Fellows will join the group of Clore Fellows for the two residential leadership courses and will follow a development programme, which will normally include a secondment of around eight weeks with a cultural organisation in the UK, training at business schools and attendance at conferences in the UK.  They will benefit from an individually tailored programme, based in the UK starting in September 2014, which includes:

  • Attendance at two intensive residential leadership courses alongside the Clore Fellows from 22 September to 3 October 2014 and 22 June to 2 July 2015
