What is the Emerging Leaders Course?

Emerging Leaders is an intensive course providing the essential skills and tools required by cultural leaders in the early stages of their careers. Grounded in experiential learning and rich with real-life examples shared by experts from across the cultural and corporate sectors, Emerging Leaders provides professional and personal development for individuals who want to lead and make an impact within the cultural sector. 

Emerging Leaders has been designed for individuals at an early stage in their career who aspire to lead. Typically Emerging Leaders course participants will have between 2-5 years experience in the cultural sector and will have had some experience in managing projects or people; are perhaps looking to take on an enhanced role and need to acquire new skills to be successful, and have undertaken some sector relevant skills development training.
