To achieve this, we work to reduce silos and improve efficiency through our team of trainers, lecturers and organisational development officers supporting a variety of qualifications such as:
- MSc degrees
- Institute of Leadership and Management Certificate (ILM) qualifications from Level 3 to Level 7
- Qualification Credit Framework (QCF) awards from Level 2 to Level 5
- generic/bespoke training to meet the needs of the public service
- and support of many organisational change initiatives including vision and values
Our vision is to Inspire, Motivate and Develop public servants and LEaD offers a wide selection of activities that will do just that - be sure to look out for the new courses that are now available in our learning prospectus.
LEaD looks forward to welcoming you to our training facilities at The Lodge in the near future.
