Clore Social Leadership Programme
Bursaries are available to UK residents who have substantial work or volunteering experience within the third sector, with the aim to identify and develop emerging talent.
A Clore Social Fellowship is fully-funded and includes a bursary element for individual Fellows or their employers. CSLP will also cover the direct costs associated with the Programme, including tuition fees, accommodation and travel costs for residential courses.
There are two funding options:
Option one is to stay in employment and to undertake the Fellowship part-time. Applicants planning to do this will require their employer to complete a nomination form. If offered a Fellowship, the applicant’s employer will be eligible to apply for a bursary of up to £15,000 (dependent on salary) to help provide cover for time spent focusing on the Fellowship and for periods away from work during the Fellowship.
Option two is to undertake the Fellowship full-time. Applicants may choose to do this if, for example, they are self-employed, taking a career break or an unpaid sabbatical. Applicants following this option will normally be eligible for a bursary of up to £20,000.
In both cases, the bursary will be paid quarterly in arrears, and payments will be linked to specific milestones in the Fellowship.
In addition to General Fellowships, a number of Specialist Fellowships will be awarded, which are funded by particular organisations to target specific groups or address particular needs
The Clore Social Leadership Programme (CSLP) offers fully-funded Fellowships tailored to meet the individual development needs of aspiring leaders in the third sector.
The Programme is made up of core elements which all Fellows will undertake, which includes the following:
360 degree assessment to provide evidence of leadership competencies, individual strengths and potential.
Residential weeks with the full cohort of Fellows.
Shorter residential sessions and day workshops with groups of Fellows.
Action learning sets in groups of Fellows.
Networking opportunities, online and in person.
An extended secondment in an unfamiliar working environment.
Access to coaching support.
A personal mentor (if required).
A practice-based research project to develop Fellows’ skills as critical users of research and to develop a wider evidence base for the sector.
This is then enhanced by additional bespoke activities and training chosen by the individual Fellow to meet their particular needs and learning styles.
In order to maintain its flexibility, the Programme will not lead to formal accreditation.
The Fellowship can be undertaken intensively over 12 months (the full-time option), or part-time, over a period of up to 24 months.
2012 deadline for 2013 Fellowships: 28 May 2012 (midday).
