Next Gen Leadership 01 01


  • Are you courageous, values based and looking to tackle the challenges ahead?
  • Do you want to join like minded leaders who want to do things differently?

Next Generation is about making sure learning disability and autism services are prepared for the future. We want to make sure tomorrow’s leaders have the right skills and knowledge to drive forward change.

The programme is suitable for people already working in learning disability and autism services. You will be in your first leadership role or have the potential to do so. Next Generation will also prepare you to take on a senior leadership role in the next three to five years.

Next Generation explores:

  • A detailed focus on leadership, personal style and achieving change.
  • The leadership styles needed to deliver rights, choice and control within the current economic climate.
  • Leading edge practice sessions on key policy priorities.

We aim for each programme to be delivered to between 25 and 30 participants.

Delivery weaves together presentations, guest speakers, group work, individual reflection and action planning. This includes:

  • An online introductory day
  • Two, two day residential events
  • Online action learning sets
  • Three online themed sessions
Quote from Graeme, previous participant
“I have learnt and grown so much as a result of this and it has really fuelled the fire within me to make positive change in the area.”
