Get more with Socitm’s new leadership academy initiatives

 Socitm is making exciting changes to its Leadership Academy.

Socitm Leadership Academy
Developing the portfolio

We are expanding our courses and programmes in order to continue to strengthen talent development in 2020’s changing environment.

  1. NEW Return to work
    Socitm has developed and launched a Return to work programme for those in ICT, working with the Local Government Association (LGA) and the Government Equalities Office (GEO). It will support people on a care-related career break or from long-term unemployment into roles within local government
  2. NEW Virtual management
    A new course reflecting the shift towards home-working, it will enable managers to support their staff working virtually. ‘Managing and motivating a remote team’, is now available to members.

This growth continues Socitm’s vision of creating a new leadership, which values empathy, communication and collaboration.

This includes specific programmes for women, those preparing for management and those already leading their organisations.

Not just learning

There is more to joining the Leadership academy than the learning opportunity. Participants also build supportive networks and create new and effective relationships with others taking part. On graduation they become part of the academy’s alumni community, able to:

  • reach out to peers
  • share experience
  • offer and receive support.

For employers, Socitm leadership programmes offer ways to manage talent and plan for succession, such as the Top Talent programme’s focus on developing potential leaders. These opportunities assist public sector employers in retaining and motivating their staff to best serve their communities. As well as helping to attract the right people in the first place.

All of Socitm’s Leadership academy programmes have been awarded Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points by the CPD Certification Service.
