The eight-module course develops skills such as strengths-based leadership and communication, alongside equipping participants to challenge limiting self-beliefs, using mindfulness techniques, embracing risk and developing a positive mindset.

The Women in Leadership Programme can be delivered as part of a Chartered Management Institute Leadership and Management Apprenticeship, which One Academy also offers.
