Comprising a Personal Development Plan, two residentials, mentoring and group projects, Extend aims to give participants the confidence, skills and a range of experiences that will enable them to achieve a greater degree of leadership in their future career – this might be through gaining a leadership position or spearheading achievements that raise the status of the profession as a whole.
Led by engage, the National Association for Gallery Education, the Extend Leadership Programme is a professional development programme open to applicants working in learning and education roles, across all art forms, who meet the eligibility criteria. The programme is tailored for colleagues from the arts and cultural sectors, to enable participants to achieve a greater degree of leadership in their future career
Developed in response to the under-representation of learning and education staff in the arts and cultural sectors, Extend is the only leadership programme designed to meet the specific needs of education and learning professionals who aspire to leadership positions in the arts and cultural sectors. The pilot programme was funded by the Cultural Leadership Programme and the Scottish Arts Council; subsequent programmes have been funded by Arts Council England, Creative Scotland and the Arts Council of Wales.
More details about the 2015-16 Extend Leadership Programme are online.
Application deadline: 10am on Monday 23 March 2015.
