Leading in Leicester and Leicestershire and WEA (Workers’ Educational Association) have formed a partnership to deliver the Community Ambassadors programme.
Our Community Ambassadors programme is part of our Leading in Leicester and Leicestershire and Reaching People project, to take part you must be based in Leicestershire and work in the local voluntary, community or social enterprise sector as a volunteer or paid employee. If you are an organisation, then this programme would be great to include in your induction process or as a next step once someone has passed their probationary review.
This programme is suitable for those who are new to the sector, or have recently returned to work (following stress-related absence, or have been out-of-office due to lockdown for example), or are looking to rebuild/build foundation skills (see further details on programme content below).
This programme provides an introduction to:

|Soft Skills in Leadership||Impact of Leadership on Wellbeing||Introduction to Leadership|
|Introduction to Small Project Planning
and Tracking Progress
|Understanding Partnerships and Stakeholders||Time Management (planning/organising time/workload)|
