Applications for intake 5 are now open and will close automatically once full, or six weeks prior to the first day of module 1 for the chosen cohort – whichever happens first.

Please do not submit an application to a cohort unless you can attend all module dates within the stated location. If you are unable to attend the module dates highlighted on the key information tab, we will withdraw your application.

We recommend that you discuss potential Stepping Up Programme dates with your line manager ahead of applying and where possible, get a copy of the Terms and Conditions signed; this will help speed up your application.
