Leading Edge programme – boosting middle leaders

In collaboration with the Leadership Centre and as part of our Leading Edge programme, our 'boosting middle leaders' pilot will bring officers and councillors together to build relationships and share new perspectives and practices that will support them to serve their communities.

This pilot will develop into an LGA offer to middle leaders – get involved now for your chance to shape how the programme evolves.

The pilot will comprise a residential session, hosted in Sheffield on Thursday 2 and Friday 3 March 2023.

Please note that this programme is now FULL. If you would like to be considered for future programmes, please complete the application form and it will be taken as an expression of interest.
