Future Professional Directors, formerly known as the Future Leaders Programme (FLP), has been designed for aspiring leaders of professional services from all areas of the university/institution. Drawing on the successes of FLP, Future Professional Directors (FPD) has been developed in response to alumni feedback, and reflects wider changes in the higher education sector.
The programme is for those that have demonstrated strong leadership potential in their current role, and for those aspiring to director roles or department equivalent.
Bringing with it the heritage of 10 years of alumni experience, FPD reflects the accelerating pace with which the challenge of professional service leadership is evolving, and the growing needs and expectations of more complex, diverse and fast-paced educational and research environments. Participants can expect an immersive experience and a greater emphasis on strategy and change.
The second cohort of Future Professional Directors takes place over nine months starting in March 2017.
