This exciting collaboration between the Social Enterprise Academy and the Scottish Refugee Council will invite refugees across Glasgow to step forward as leaders for their communities and shape a new future. It will develop leadership skills, provide the tools to create impact and offer a supportive opportunity to connect with peers.
This 12 day blended leadership programme will equip you with practical
skills to help you understand yourself better; lead, motivate and inspire others, and consider how you can
take a more strategic approach to lead in your community, whether this is your community of refugees or the geographical communities that you find yourself in.
The programme will support all participants to develop
both individually and collectively as a leadership community of practice. This
will not be a technical or academic leadership programme, but will take a very
practical approach. It will be focused on the challenges and opportunities
around refugees stepping up to become key leaders in their community.
Learners will access the tools and support to gain an ILM accredited Certificate in Leadership, which also offers the opportunity to progress directly into Napier’s BA in Business and Enterprise at third year level.
