Leadership Development Programme

Graduates can get a helping hand to amplify their impact on the aquaculture sector, with a series of tailored personal development sessions.

Leadership Development Programme

Enhance on-the-job leadership and management learning

The programme for 2022 is now full, however you can find the programme outline below. If you have any questions or are interested in next year's programme, please get in touch.

SAIC is dedicated to helping grow the aquaculture talent pool. We fund innovative research projects, Masters programmes, undergraduate travel grants, leadership and management training and support sector diversity.

The Sustainable Aquaculture Innovation Centre Leadership Development Programme is designed to enhance on-the-job leadership and management learning. Its focus is on increasing impact through learning practical leadership tools and techniques that can be readily applied in the workplace. All workshops will conclude with a challenge and actions points for implementation.

The 12-month blended training programme is delivered by Skillfluence. Each session is designed for this group and will be delivered by knowledgeable, experienced facilitators and invited guests with current experience and relevant perspectives. Sessions are delivered on pre-agreed dates, mostly virtually but there may also be some in-person meetings.
