Professional Training

Aspiring Leaders Programme

Aspiring Leaders Programme

Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality and unlock people’s potential to become better.

As an organisation which for many years has provided professional qualification training, CTSI understands the huge benefits that professional development provides to both employees and their own organisations.

To highlight our commitment to developing leaders and enhancing leadership capability we have partnered with Closha Associates Ltd to add an Aspiring Leader Programme to our professional training portfolio.

Designed specifically for regulatory professionals, this online programme will focus on self-development, improving skills and equipping aspiring leaders with the tools and confidence to lead their teams and help them learn how to influence and inspire others.

The programme 

Is designed to build confidence and capabilities for officers who would like to develop the skills to take on more responsibility in the future, or who have recently started their first team leading role.

The programme consists of four individual online bite-size sessions aimed at helping your future leaders to understand their responsibilities to themselves, to others around them and throughout their organisation. 

Over these sessions, we will build on the skills, knowledge and behaviours required to support current roles, as well as preparing them for leadership roles they aspire to hold in the future.

All sessions run from 9:30-12:30 and dates can be viewed on the Aspiring Leaders Programme Timetable.

The sessions are delivered by Nikki Pasek MBE - Nikki is an experienced trainer specialising in leadership training and development and also delivers the Regulatory Leadership Course which is approved by the Institute of Leadership & Management.
Sessions are supported with online resources and materials available to download.
