The Aspiring Leaders Program

The Aspiring Leaders Program (ALP) aspires to equip graduates and aspiring leaders with the skills needed for a successful transition from student life to the business world. By introducing them to fundamental leadership, team-working and interpersonal skills, an understanding of emotional intelligence, health, and well-being, presentation and communication skills - including how to make an impact for the right reason - graduates return to your business motivated and better prepared.

The ALP also helps bond the group into a self-supporting graduate network who build strong relationships throughout their graduate scheme that last throughout their careers.


Graduates will return to the business with:

  • Improved self-confidence
  • An understanding of fundamental leadership and teambuilding skills
  • Improved self and time management
  • Better communication and presentation skills
  • Improved performance through increased energy levels by realizing the importance of health and wellbeing
  • The ability to create effective working relationships through improved inter-personal skills
  • A better understanding of their own strengths and weaknesses
  • Having developed a personal action plan based on their personal goals
  • Establishing a self-supporting network


Each ALP is tailor-made to the specific requirements of individual companies but is similar in format, with a strong emphasis on experiential learning. This combination of indoor theoretical work and outdoor practical application allows the theory to be put into practice ensuring the training is understood more clearly as well as being enjoyable, relevant, memorable and beneficial.


The experiential learning is through a practical application where teams carry out leadership tasks which are a series of enjoyable team challenges that are best described as light physical and cerebrally challenging.
