Announcing the new Aspiring Chief Executive Programme

Centre for Charity Effectiveness at Cass Business School to launch new leadership development programme

The Centre for Charity Effectiveness at Cass Business School, part of City University London, will launch a new Aspiring Chief Executive Programme in June 2013.

The programme is designed for nonprofit leaders who want to step up and become chief executives. It is designed to run alongside the successful New Chief Executive Programme.

The Programme has proved so popular that the June intake is already fully booked. Expressions of interest are being taken for the next intake which will start in late 2013/early 2014.

The course will be led by James Barrett, former CEO of The HIV Project, and supported by George Levy, former CEO of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

James Barrett says: "We realised there is a gap in the market for experienced leaders who aren't yet in a chief executive positions, but are ready to make that leap to take on the role.

"We have a long standing and highly regarded New Chief Executive Programme which constantly achieves exceptional evaluation scores from participants.

"Often chief executives finish the programme, and want their own senior leadership teams to have the same development opportunity. The programme recognises that there is a seismic shift from a senior leader position to the chief executive role."

The course begins with two intensive two-day modules in June and July, cumulating with a final day module in September.

The Centre's New Chief Executive Programme will also return for 2013 with two two-day courses in May/June, and a final day in July.

George White, Chief Executive of Martha Trust who participated in the New Chief Executive Programme last year comments:

"I found the course immensely helpful to my work as a charity CEO. It made me challenge my perceptions of strategic matters such as managing change and gave me insight into staff reactions. I am delighted that Cass CCE is launching the Aspiring Chief Executive Programme to enable senior leaders to explore the step up."
