Design of the leadership course that Catalyst has developed with One Awards, Corner House Youth Project and Skillshare is now complete and we are soon to start our recruitment of the second cohort to start in January.

To remind you – this is a six module course aimed at new managers in the VCSE and will lead to a level five qualification. As a special course concentrating on VCSE management it is heavily weighted towards the learning and experience that participants have at work. It is aimed to ensure that the development of our leaders of the future is grounded in the realities of their work and demands they face on a daily basis.

We need to know who may be interested so that we can gauge the second potential cohort, so are accepting expressions of interest.

The details:

Cohort: Maximum of 12 from VCSE organisations – if over-subscribed only one per organisation

Cost: £500 per head if working in Stockton-on-Tees (£750 per head if working elsewhere)
