Brookes Future Leaders Programme

  • Brookes Future Leaders Image 3

  • Overview
    Graduates competing for employment in a fast changing world of work need to develop a range of skills and experience to help them stand out from the crowd. To help you, Careers has developed a dynamic programme endorsed by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM).

    Throughout the course, you will take part in activities that will help you focus on your ability to work with others in a team and recognise your potential as a future leader. You will receive personal feedback from assigned tutors who will observe your performance and support your self-reflection, and you will also have the opportunity to gain the Brookes Future Leaders Certificate.

    Who is this course for?

    • All undergraduate and postgraduate students from any discipline.
    • All students interested in their employability and self development - regardless of whether you see yourself as a potential leader.
