Our Leadership Programme

Our successful leadership programme provides training for aspiring and experienced leaders at a level right for them. We support and deliver a range of courses that support young leaders and adult leaders to gain qualifications, confidence and develop the competitive edge they need for other areas of their lives.

Level 1 is accredited through Open College Network West Midlands and aimed at young leaders aged 14 – 16. It provides an introduction to the key elements of leadership and focuses on team development.

Level 2 is accredited through Open College Network West Midlands and is aimed at leaders aged 16-19. It focuses on the transition of being a youth club/project member to a responsible leader.

Level 3 is accredited through The ILM and is aimed at leaders aged 19+. This focuses on development of leadership skills, developing and supporting others and reflective practice. Click here to download more information.

“The first course I did was the Open College Network West Midlands Level 1 Leadership course at Oxenwood. The highs were meeting all the different people and being able to push myself out of my comfort zones in some of the activities. I then did a week long residential at Glenborrodale in Scotland. It was an amazing experience for me. You get to meet some amazing young people from all over the UK and from different backgrounds.

“Now I’m a Youth Club Co-Coordinator at Youth Action Wiltshire, working 25 hours a week. I wasn’t really too sure what I wanted to be doing before I got involved with the training course. It has helped me to see my strengths and weaknesses. From this I’ve seen that I really want to further my career in the youth sector.”
