Women working with Nottingham Trent University (NTU) are able to play their part in inspiring further female professionals to excel in their careers through the Women In Leadership Programme.

NTU runs the fully funded 3-day course at Nottingham Business School for women working in management or leadership roles, or aspiring to be, who want to develop their capability to manage and lead. 

The course is part of the Priority Skills for D2N2 SMEs project which is part-funded by the European Social Fund. It provides accredited professional development and is designed to be supportive and accessible to those with no higher education experience.

Course benefits include: get greater clarity on career goals, and better capability to manage and lead; get a university-accredited professional development course for your CV, and earn credits toward a further postgraduate programme.

Up-skilling in a supportive environment

Working in a supportive environment, women on the course focus on practical issues and cover a number of topics, including:

  • how gender differences in leadership tendencies impact the way women lead
  • effective leadership and management techniques that support employee engagement and performance at an individual, team and organisational level
  • management and leadership issues and trends in organisations
  • learning strategies to support development as a leader

In addition to attending three full-day workshops, participants complete a Personal Development Plan and a report exploring a leadership or management issue. Three confidential, career coaching sessions are offered to support participants in their ongoing career development.

Participant shares positive experience

Victoria Hickman women in leadership

Victoria Hickman, Head of HR and Internal Recruitment at a consultancy firm, recently look part in NTU's Women in Leadership Programme and says she has reaped the rewards.

“I definitely got what I wanted from the Women in Leadership module. It has helped so much with understanding development and progression," says Victoria. "We covered recognising personality traits and types within your team and how each can react to different situations which I feel is really important for managers so we can get the best out of people."

“The part of the course I enjoyed the most was around authentic leadership, which really digs down into understanding yourself and your role as a leader and advisor to consider how you might be perceived by others and how they can work with you," she continues. “I now feel like I can be more self-aware in a business setting and understand how different personalities can work well with one another, so I’m hoping this insight can provide some immediate benefits.”
