About the course

This course will focus on four core components of good leadership in a campaigning context:

  1. Managing in a ‘political’ context and creating a campaign culture across your organisation
  2. Strategic Planning and Leadership in a campaigning context. Identifying, prioritising and capitalising on trends, priority setting and gaining consensus for campaign plans
  3. Communicating campaigns, values and framing within a campaign context both internally and within the wider external environment
  4. Understanding and managing governance and political diligence in a campaigning context to ensure maximum organisational commitment to campaigning 

Who should apply?

This course is aimed at senior professionals overseeing campaigns who want to enhance leadership skills and develop a campaigning culture in their organisation. Participants may be involved in running campaigns themselves, or have overall responsibility for the direction of campaigns or be about to move into a management role or leadership role in campaigning.

By bringing people together NCVO hopes to foster a culture of strategic campaigning in the sector, helping leaders to work together to achieve lasting impact.

Who runs it?

The course will be delivered through a mixture of input from Brian Lamb, author of the Good Campaigns Guide, NCVO and sector experts. You will have the opportunity to share learning, challenges and solutions and begin longer term planning. You will also be given tools and approaches to develop your management skills and practice in these areas. There is an opportunity for learning from peers explicitly during the course as well as through other experts and to expand professional networks.
