Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisation

Reminder – deadline to apply for next Leading GM development programme is Monday 7 May

The Leading GM programme was created with the objective of building a diverse community of leaders who can help equip Greater Manchester with the skills to spearhead the ongoing transformation of our region.

Since its inception in October 2016, Leading GM has delivered two successful programmes and worked with 200 leaders drawn from across GM’s ten localities. A wide range of bespoke workshops and events have taken place, all with the goal of creating a strong community of capable and resilient leaders.

As the GM region continues to change, so do the challenges it faces and the methods of tackling the challenges. This is why, ahead of the next cohort intake, the Leading GM programme has been significantly changed, based and building on previous successes. Because it is essential for the programme to model the exact change it sets out to create, from now on a place-based approach will be fundamental to its ethos. The new concept has been tested in Oldham and Bolton and proved fit for purpose.

There are up to 20 places available on the upcoming 2018/9 Leading GM place-based programme. To be eligible, you need to be working at GM level or across the GM footprint.

If you are interested in being considered, please submit an expression of interest using this form.

On the form, please specify what you can bring to the programme, what you would like to develop and also identify if there is a specific locality or place based challenge in which you have a particular interest. Before applying, ensure you have support from your line manager to attend both the GM wide events and the locality ‘learning into action’ sessions.

Completed forms must be emailed to:

Deadline: Monday 7 May 2018.

The programme team will advise you of the outcome of your application on Tuesday 8 May 2018. In the meantime, please hold Thursday 10 May free for to attend the Leading GM launch event pending this confirmation.
