Leadership and STEM Skills Development Programmes

European Social Fund and Department for Work and Pensions logos

The Smart and Inclusive Leadership programme (SAIL) offered fully-funded courses until December 2023. This was possible thanks to funding from the European Social Fund and the delivery partners, which include the University of Derby, Nottingham Trent University, Derby College, Nottingham College, East Midlands Chamber of Commerce, Enable, and the Workers’ Educational Association.

The programme helped participants identify and develop their own leadership style, building on their existing skills and strengths. A range of different approaches were covered including:

357participants supported
112participants gained a L3 qualification or above
51participants gained the full L4 qualification
