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 Leaders Programme to our professional training portfolio.

Designed specifically for those working in a local authority setting, 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 

The training 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 future leaders to understand their responsibilities to themselves, to others around them and throughout their organisation. All four online sessions MUST be completed during this training.

Over these sessions, we will build on the skills, knowledge and behaviours required to support current roles, as well as preparing delegates 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 Leaders Programme which is approved by the Institute of Leadership.

Sessions are supported with online resources and materials available to download.

Programme Details

10 October - Session 1: Leadership Values

Self-awareness is essential for any leader. Being clear on your own values, habits and motivation will enable you to make better decisions and ultimately lead others to do the same.


23 October - Session 2: Leading Teams

All organisations rely on many individuals to contribute to delivery and teamwork is a key element for success. The most effective leaders build relationships based on trust and loyalty.


5 November - Session 3: Delivering Results

Great leaders are high performers. They have direction; deliver measurable results; are proud of their work; stretch themselves and others; and are adaptable to ensure sustainability.

Collaborative leaders understand the value of effective relationships and networking. They are keen to work across boundaries and engage with others internally and externally.
