Disability Rights UK’s Leadership Academy Programme is recruiting now

Thursday 17th October 2019

The Leadership Academy Programme (LAP) is a career development programme for Disabled employees. The 2019-20 cohort will be the 6th year and has been very successful to date. The programme is designed to consider leadership and career progression for employees living with a disability.

Delegates with various disabilities have seen a marked improvement in their confidence, motivation, and acceptance of seeing their disability as a positive advantage. Many have gone on to successfully apply for new leadership posts and finished the programme feeling more open about discussing their disability. To apply, applicants will need to complete an application form, the cost is £1800+VAT and must be supported by their employer.

There is also the opportunity for senior managers to volunteer 8 hours of their time, to mentor delegates through their leadership journey. This is an exciting opportunity to receive training and join a strong network of other committed mentors.

If you know of any Disabled Peoples Organisations who might want to place a Delegate onto the programme and would benefit from a subsidised place, please do contact me about this. Also, please do share this cut & paste section and the attached information flyer with your networks.
