Accelerate 2022 - Preparing leaders for change

ADASS is committed to supporting our members with their professional development. Delivered in partnership with Newton, we are pleased to be launching the fifth year of our Accelerate programme.

We have been delighted with the feedback we have received from the last four cohorts; and despite the significant challenges of the last year, Accelerate continues to be seen as an essential development programme for those leaders who are overseeing or managing complex change programmes.

Accelerate supports senior leaders (working at director or assistant director level) to develop the leadership capabilities required to oversee, or manage teams to deliver complex transformational change.

The programme, which involves four short residential modules over a 10-month period, starts in April 2022.

The new closing date for applications is 05 January 2022

Please fill in the short form below to download a copy of the flyer, the application form, and the equality and diversity monitoring form. You should return both application and equality monitoring forms to by Jan 05 (midnight) for your application to be considered.
