Civil Service Leadership Academy

The Civil Service Leadership Academy supports senior leaders to be truly effective in the unique context of government.

About us

The Civil Service Leadership Academy offers events and learning interventions to support the development of leadership skills within the civil service. Presently, the programme is focused on Senior Civil Servants and people on talent programmes but will be extended to the whole civil service over time.

The Leadership Academy’s approach to learning focuses on bringing leaders together from across the civil service to share experiences and expertise as a core part of its learning offer. The Leadership Academy’s principle of ‘leaders teaching leaders’ is effective because it:

  • reflects the unique environment in which civil servants work, and develops leaders to adapt to change
  • recognises the importance of leadership at every level, supporting all leaders across professions, grades and roles
  • develops people for the leadership they need now as well as for the future

Join us

We are extremely keen to continue to grow our Academy ‘faculty’ of facilitators, presenters or case study sponsors. If you are an experienced facilitator or a leader who can share your practice with other leaders across the Civil Service, please contact
