NICVA calls for spring participants for interface-based Transformative Leadership Programme

nicva transformative leadership programme

Spring dates have now been set for the Transformative Leadership Programme (TLP)—a leadership training programme funded by the PEACE IV Programme through Belfast City Council.

“An amazing, thought-provoking, informative and inspiring leadership programme, I leave feeling refreshed, inspired and motivated to make change”

— Autumn 2019 Participant

This inclusive programme is being delivered across 15 interface areas in Belfast, and NICVA is delighted to be delivering it along with locally based partners across the city: Falls Community Council, West Belfast Partnership Board, East Belfast Community Development Agency and Forward South Partnership.

Spring dates for TLP courses

This course is unique in that it brings together people from local communities, public sector agencies including the Council and government departments, and local politicians and activists, to build leadership skills and share ideas on how to make life better in interface areas

This collaborative programme is tailored to suit local need and to help participants learn skills for building solution-focused approaches that can make lasting changes in Belfast.

Participants on Autumn TLP courses told NICVA that as well as enjoying learning new leadership skills and tools, they placed great value on working together with others from different backgrounds and sectors to make a difference

“Very worthwhile training, increasing collaboration between community / residents and statutory bodies is welcomed

A trainer on one of the Autumn TLP courses commented:

“It has been encouraging to see participants from our autumn cohort have already begun to build relationships with those they may otherwise have not engaged with prior to this programme. We are seeing participants as young as eighteen actively challenging and working towards changing the narratives around our interface areas.”

Helen McLaughlin, the Programme Co-ordinator says:

“Whether you’re brand new to learning about leadership, or you’ve been involved in working to make life better in your area for many years, as a volunteer or as a professional, this course could be for you”.

Spring dates have now been set so to find out the dates for your area, contact Helen McLaughlin at NICVA. Email [email protected] or phone 028 9087 7777.
