Taster Programme

Joining our Taster Programme is an excellent way to engage with our work and start developing the skills and behaviours needed to enhance your employability skills.

Over the course of one day, you’ll take part in a series of interactive workshops which focus on debating, problem solving, communication and reflection. Through these sessions, you will be able to reflect on your personal skill set, acquire new skills and create a bespoke development plan. You’ll also experience working in an unfamiliar team and seeing how other people approach the same challenges, and gain an insight into the rewards and demands of teaching.

During the day you’ll meet some of our ambassadors – graduates who have completed our two-year Leadership Development Programme – who will share their experiences with you, making sure that you are in the best position to progress on your leadership journey.
