Clore Leadership Programme | Researching the Training and Development Needs of Leader
Scoping the Leadership Skills Needs of Cultural Leaders | Aspiring Leaders in England
Expert leadership is crucial to the success of any organisation and sector, including those working in culture. In the current era of tumbling budgets and constrained spending, it is particularly vital that the sector has skilled, expert leaders taking crucial decisions that affect us all, however we are engaged in culture – as audiences, participants, partners and those working in the sector. Leaders need to continually update their skills in order to ensure they can respond to a changing environment.
In order to ensure the sector receives leadership development which is relevant to its needs, the Clore Leadership Programme, with funding from Arts Council England, has commissioned TBR to deliver an independent research study for the cultural sector with the aim of understanding the skills and development needs of leaders and aspiring cultural leaders in England. The study focuses on identifying the areas in which leaders and aspiring leaders feel they need training and development, and explores the gaps and barriers to engaging in current provision. The study aims to provide information that will help ensure leadership development opportunities are relevant and accessible to those who will benefit from them.
A core element of the study is a survey of current and aspiring leaders in the cultural sector, which is available on the link below. The results of the study will be shared with the cultural sector and a high response rate is essential to ensure that the findings are of value to the sector. We would therefore encourage wide participation.
