Recruitment is now closed. Local Leadership Academies are responsible for the recruitment and selection process.
The Stepping Up programme is fully funded by the Academy, including accommodation. The cost of travelling is the responsibility of each participant’s organisation.
Withdrawal before full completion means the organisation is liable to bear the full cost of £2,200.
