EAUC Leadership Academy

EAUC is launching a national Sustainability Leadership Academy in 2020.  This Community of Practice is for change agents in the higher and further education sectors who are working to accelerate sustainable development through the teaching/learning, research/innovation and campus/community/service work of their institution.
Bringing together leaders within the sector with other experts and thought leaders, Academy members will be able to join Leadership Masterclass Webinars and facilitated Online Discussion Forums on topical emerging trends.  Each member of the Academy will also be able to access personal Online Coaching/Mentoring sessions.
Initially, membership of the Academy will be restricted to participants and alumni of the EAUC Cambridge residential Leadership Lab programme.

The EAUC Leadership Academy will provide access to exclusive opportunities for networking, and invitation-only events run by the EAUC or partner organisations.  A closed JiscMail list will be used to facilitate engagement and discussion among Academy members.
The cost to join the Leadership Academy is £299 per year.  This will include:
  • 2 Leadership Masterclass Webinars
  • 2 Facilitated online discussion forums
  • 2 one to one virtual coaching / mentoring sessions
  • Closed JiscMail group
  • Other exclusive opportunities open to Leadership Academy Members only

EAUC Emerging Leaders Programme 2020

Through this programme, you will gain a greater understanding of leadership practices with relevance to sustainability.  Examples will be drawn from Education, not-for-profit and commercial sectors with ‘expert witnesses’ supplementing the teaching. You will receive guidance and support on expanding your networks, both internally and externally, to deliver projects with impact. Learning from others is an essential part of the programme and sharing knowledge and ideas from the cohort is actively encouraged. 

There is five full training days plus five on-line 2-hour Action Learning sessions.  Full support, facilitation, and tools are provided for the Action Learning Sets along with a bespoke virtual learning environment.

Who should attend?

The EAUC Emerging Leaders Programme is for any sustainability professionals with mandates to lead on organisation-wide behaviour change. Often they have little or no ‘formal line management’ authority and may well work at levels in the hierarchy where the ability to influence those at more senior levels is an important requirement. It might be particularly attractive to sustainability professionals with an interest in developing their careers.

Whilst the programme has been developed by the Further and Higher Education sector, the skills delegates gain from attending it are transferable; therefore, we welcome delegates from the wider public sector and corporates. 

NEW! Take advantage of the 20% off discounted rate if your institution sends three or more delegates to the Emerging Leaders Programme 2020.
