Government launches National Leadership Centre programme
The new National Leadership Centre has welcomed its first cohort of public sector leaders, to increase the quality of vital public services.
Invited participants, including chief constables, fire chiefs and CEOs of hospital trusts, will begin a coaching and collaboration programme with support from world leading institutions such as the University of Oxford and MIT. The network of leaders has been created to drive collaboration across the public sector.
Each year, the innovative programme will develop the skills of over 100 senior public service leaders, with participants coached in different areas including future technologies, like AI and robotics, to understand how they can embrace new tools to transform public service.
John Manzoni, chief executive of the Civil Service, said: “I am incredibly excited to see the National Leadership Centre launch. Those involved will learn from the very best and develop a fantastic network offering knowledge sharing and peer support. The development of our senior leaders will help them drive improvement in the UK’s crucial services the public use everyday.”
