Core leadership development

The Civil Service Leadership Academy offers senior leaders a number of learning opportunities.


This series of masterclasses will provide senior leaders with opportunities to learn from thought leaders and expert practitioners who bring the latest research insights and new perspectives on topical leadership issues.

To ensure currency, topics will be determined by a combination of the latest research from respected industry leaders; evidence, such as, from 360 analysis and issues emerging from other learning fora; SCS Base Camp, for example.

Current masterclasses include:

Leadership learning expertise/consultancy

It is important to provide departments and professions with support to meet their learning needs. As the Leadership Academy evolves it will:

  • help departments to learn from each other’s successes and sharing best practice in the wider industry
  • work with internal and external faculty on the design of learning
  • support external procurement where needed
