For the Third Sector

UK charities are increasingly recognising the importance of investing in their aspiring managers across all levels of skill and competence.

In the past year, many charities have unexpectedly lost their great managers as people continue to exit their roles. Facing the ‘great resignation’ across the sector, charities without learning and development strategies in place are losing talent faster than they can recruit. Investing in your employees  with award-winning management programmes, accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), will allow your organisation to attract and retain the best talent.

Learn more about the management programmes we offer for the Third Sector:

Learner experience

Blended learning delivery model, flexible learning content in a range of formats + bite-sized, practical projects to embed learning

Upon completion, learners will receive a Management qualification relevant to their course

Fortnightly coaching with a Professional Development Expert + hands-on workshops delivered by experienced data scientists

An award-winning curriculum that is fully funded through the Apprenticeship Levy

Who is the programme for?

These management programmes are designed for high-potential talent who aspire to succeed as a manager in the third sector. Candidates will already have some management responsibilities and want to further develop their skills to support the next step in their careers. They should be committed to their professional development, keen to learn new skills, and open to the benefits of one-to-one coaching.
