The programme, which is approved by the Institute of Leadership and Management, is aimed at future leaders of associations. It covers strategic corporate issues including finance, governance, leadership skills, and risk management. Therefore, if you are interested in applying to be a CSP Council or Committee member, we encourage you to apply. 

Inviting members of BAME networks in the CSP and other allied health professional bodies to apply for one of the funded places, the AHPF said: ‘Leaders of all the AHP professions… agree that one area of focus for all of us is supporting leadership development for BAME members to help shape the future of our professional associations.’

The programme requires a time commitment of around 50-60 hours spread over approximately a six-month period.

It consists mainly of online learning with others, with some self-directed learning. Successful applicants will join a mixed cohort of BAME and non-BAME colleagues.

How to apply

To apply, send a CV and letter to info@ahpf.org.uk, setting out why you want to complete the programme and what you would like to contribute to your professional association once you have completed it.

For more information, visit the AHPF website.

The deadline for applications is Friday 12 February 2021.

If you have any questions please contact governance@csp.org.uk.
