Social Enterprise Leadership Programmes

Social Enterprise Development Organisation iSE have joined forces with The Social Enterprise Academy to bring you two new unique and intensive accredited leadership programmes designed exclusively to support third sector leaders to respond to challenges and opportunities.


About The Programme

This exclusive programme takes a whole organisation approach by working with Chief Executives and middle managers of organisations operating throughout the West Midlands. Learning is delivered in two separate but linked programmes, over a six month period, to truly embed organisational change. Each programme provides participants with  practical opportunities to explore different theories and leadership themes, creating a powerful and transformational experience.

The programmes are heavily subsidised through the Postcode Innovation Trust and lead to accreditation.
