Course Code: 326

Target Audience

Summer School is aimed at managers and leaders from across the public and third sector in Wales, who influence and shape the delivery of our services and who are engaged in leading change. It is particularly relevant for those who are working through challenging times and seeking to make significant improvements to their organisational outcomes.


Designed as a ‘stretch’ programme, this 5 day learning event will provide a unique opportunity to review and refresh current skills, build new knowledge and insight into cutting edge leadership practice and explore innovative ways to ‘deliver the business’, drawing upon a wealth of global knowledge and experience

Summer School is an immersive residential learning programme bringing together approximately 250 people from across the public and third sector in Wales each year. The event is held over 5 working days, and is hosted within an academic learning environment. Summer School provides the opportunity for people to work across boundaries and cultures to better understand each other and how they will become more effective 21st century leaders.

There is a nominal cost for Summer School of £500 plus VAT which covers a contribution to learning costs for the event. The cost of accommodation and food for the week is covered but delegates travel costs will not be met by the programme. Potential delegates should ensure that they have secured funding through their Department or College to meet these costs prior to application.

Please note that should you be awarded a place at Summer School and then withdraw from the programme, your Department or College may be required to pay the full cost.
