Sunderland Software City Launch Leadership Skills Programme

Sunderland Software City is offering a limited number of software and technology businesses in the North-East the opportunity to develop the leadership and management skills of their staff, free of charge.

Through continued dialogue with software companies in the region we have determined that there is an identified need for some staff to strengthen their skills in the areas of leadership and development which will help them to react to increasingly dynamic roles in the software sector and increase business performance.

To address this need we have developed a training programme that is aimed at managers and staff with management potential.

The programme starts on the 27th June and will run for 6 months, with approximately one half day workshop per month covering the topics shown below:

  • Effective Leadership & Management*
  • Management Coaching
  • Building Teams*
  • Managing Change
  • Managing Performance
  • Time Management
  • Effective Recruitment or Presentation Skills (there is an option between these two units, to be decided by the needs of the group of trainees)

*full day workshop

The programme has been compiled with software and technology companies as the intended recipients and will be delivered by North East training provider Aware Plus Ltd.

Feedback from previous courses has been very positive, with companies telling us that skills gained have led to improved performance within the business.

We are pleased to be able to offer this programme free of charge to a select number of regional businesses.
