DTL to host free-to-attend collaborative leadership session

23 July 2018

Develop Training Ltd (DTL) is hosting a free session on collaborative leadership specifically for the public sector on 18th September.

The event will explain how public sector organisations, including local authorities, can use their apprenticeship levy contributions to fund collaborative change and shared services leadership.

In partnership with Shared Services Architecture

DTL has partnered with public sector specialist Shared Services Architecture (SSA) in response to growing demand for collaborative working to create a collaborative leadership training programme for middle managers. The introductory event in Derby on Tuesday 18 September will give delegates a taste of the full programme.

Equip managers to manage collaborative projects

Clive Lawrence-Forbes, Head of Corporate Management Development, said: “The key to breaking down silos and getting teams working together is to equip managers with the leadership skills they need to manage collaborative projects. Our programme with SSA is designed to do just that, and the great thing is that it can be funded by apprenticeship levy contributions. I would encourage anyone with an interest in this area to come to the event and find out more.”

Join one of our taster sessions

The taster session, which is set to take place at the Hallmark Hotel in Derby, is designed for individuals working in, or engaging with, the public sector. It will explain how operational managers can use the programme to develop collaborative working skills, helping their employers to fulfil their duty to collaborate.

Specifically developed for the public sector

The new management training programme was developed in response to the rise of collaborative working between public sector bodies aimed at tackling some of the most difficult problems in today’s society.

Societal problems, such as loneliness in the elderly or homelessness, require a multi-agency approach. However, collaborative working is challenging, as shown by SSA research that revealed more than half of public sector collaborations fail to deliver because of a lack of management skills.

With public sector bodies from local authorities to emergency services working together as never before, the Level 5 Operations/Departmental Manager programme aims to teach collaborative techniques and project management. It is also built around the new apprenticeship standards, making it eligible for levy funding.

Ideal for existing and emerging operational managers

The 15-month programme fills a gap by appealing to existing and emerging operational managers who may not be trained to degree level, for example in housing or the emergency services.

Successful delegates will be awarded professional recognition as CTArc™ (Collaborative Transformation Architect), and provided with a pathway to a Level 7 Postgraduate Certificate in Collaborative Transformation.
