Enhancing Leadership and Management Skills in Wales
This programme covers:
The Centre of Excellence for Leadership and Management in Wales
The Centre has the objective of driving up demand for leadership and management skills, particularly in small and medium businesses, delivering enhanced information and signposting services to business and co-ordinating analysis of the need for Leadership and Management from organisations such as Sector Skills Councils.
For further information please view the Leadership and Management Wales website.
The Leadership and Management Workshops Programme
The Leadership and Management workshops are a series of open access workshops delivered across Wales by a network of providers. The workshops focus on a range of aspects of management including leadership skills and managing change. The Workshops can be attended by an employer or manager at any level who are based in Wales. The increased level of funding secured for the workshops will substantially increase the number of people who will benefit from leadership and management skills development. The cost of the workshops are subsidised at 70% for Small to Medium Sized Enterprises (SME) organisations and at 50% for non SMEs.
Workforce Development Programme Discretionary Funding
Discretionary funding support for leadership and management training is a key aspect of the Workforce Development Programme. The aim is to develop businesses by subsidising leadership and management skills training that has been identified as necessary by a Human Resource Development adviser.
Companies may now also access funding for Leadership and Management directly, provided that the training leads to a Management qualification and/ or the training provider is accredited by a recognised body like the Chartered Management Institute.
Sector Leadership Fund (Leadership and Management Development)
The part of the programme will provide funding to Sector Skills councils to deliver sector specific solutions where a specific need is identified.
Management Diagnostic Programme
This will provide a facility to businesses to be able to diagnose the Leadership and Management issues of their organisation.
Mentoring and Coaching Skills Training
A pilot programme to train mentors and coaches will provide an opportunity for individuals to gain skills and achieve a relevant qualification.
