I think the benefits for the Fellow are in terms of
professional recognition/career development.
Leadership Foundation Fellowship enables individual leaders to commit to developing their leadership skills and profile. It is about continued development and shared best practice amongst a community of over 70 LF Fellows from across the higher education sector.
Fellowship ensures that development does not stop with the end of one of our leadership programmes; instead it provides an opportunity to further enhance the skills you have developed in a tangible and meaningful way as your career progresses.
LF Fellowship is awarded in recognition of the work that a participant has undertaken on a programme and beyond it to develop as a leader. Achieving LF Fellowship involves a combination of your own personal development plan, supporting evidence and one to one conversations with your dedicated Fellowship coach. Successfully completing this supported process will lead to the award of the title ‘LF Fellow’ and the post-nominals (FLF).
Associate Fellowship is applicable to those that opt in to working toward LF Fellowship and have completed their 360-degree diagnostic included in their chosen leadership programme.

You will be able to use this title whilst you progress toward your LF Fellowship as an indication of your commitment to achieving this.
