City Office leadership programmes

Information on the leadership programmes run by the Bristol City Office.

City Leadership Programme

The City Leadership Programme identifies and invests in the lives of high ability, high aspiration sixth form students from disadvantaged backgrounds and groups which are under-represented in leadership. 

The two week programme nurtures the participants’ leadership potential and accelerates their personal growth, providing them with the tools they need to target the top.

Stepping Up

Launched by the City Office in 2018, this 12 month programme supports future Black and Minority Ethnic (BME), women and Disabled leaders. The programme is now inviting applications from 1 October to 30 November 2018.

Bristol Leadership Challenge

The Bristol Leadership Challenge is an ambitious new programme that aims to develop leadership capacity to tackle systemic, city-wide challenges. 

The first group, starting in October 2017, will focus on mental health and addressing the human and economic costs of complex multiple needs. 

This initiative is delivered in partnership with Golden Key, the University of the West of England and the Leadership Centre.
