Although women are now more visible in public leadership roles, there is no denying that they are still under-represented at the top levels. This highly practical programme addresses the issues and the challenges women face in leadership and offers advice and approaches based on what is proven to work well in terms of leading, managing and preparing for a career change or promotion.

By taking a highly practical, honest approach to the barriers facing women striving for a leadership position, and how they can be overcome, this one-day course offers delegates unique  tips, insights and tactics for successful leadership and management, as well as exploring steps that delegates can take in the lead-up to a change in role.

Besides drawing on the trainer’s personal and vast experience the programme provides a coaching/mentoring teaching method that provide opportunities for personal reflection and support.

Women in Breakthrough Leadership is a unique and innovative course featured in the Civil Service College's Leadership and Management series. At Civil Service College, we pride ourselves on our ability to tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.

  • Identifying and dealing with issues and barriers to advancement faced by women in the workplace
  • Recognising and dealing with common mistakes and traps faced by women
