The Frontrunner leadership course for disabled students

21/03/2013

 Frontrunner

For disabled students

Learn more than what it means to be a leader – learn how to lead. Take part in an active three day leadership course where you will:

  • visit organisations from every sector
  • meet leaders from a range of backgrounds
  • consult on real-life business challenges
  • try your hand at leading teams

Frontrunner is a course that lets you explore leadership. As a participant you will move your understanding beyond models and theories by investigating leadership from the perspective of local leaders. You will meet current leaders across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors as they share the challenges they are facing. 

 Who is Frontrunner for?

This Frontrunner is for disabled university students over the age of 18 who want to improve their capacity to lead. You need to be able to demonstrate that you’ve lead before in any forum – at school; university; work; sport; a club or society; a religious group; or even with your friends.

 

What happens on the course?

On Frontrunner we’ll take you beyond the classroom into the local community. You’ll have the opportunity to visit local and international businesses, public sector bodies and community groups.

During the three days you will:

  • understand what it means to lead 
  • improve your ability to ask questions
  • test your leadership skills through applied practice 
  • learn to give and receive constructive feedback

 

Who could you meet?

Participants on Frontrunner have met leaders from organisations such as:

  • Santander
  • PricewaterhouseCoopers
  • Islamic Relief
  • Police & Fire Services
  • Oxfam
  • The Observer
  • DLA Piper
  • Rolls Royce

  • Outrage!

 Graduates of the course will also have the opportunity to apply for internships with Santander.
