Black Leadership Programme

Do you want to become part of the next generation of leaders?

What is the Black Leadership Programme?

The Black Leadership Programme runs every year and is your opportunity to connect with peers, enhance your skills and distinguish yourself.

A collaboration between Nottingham Trent University and Nottingham Trent Students’ Union, this programme is crafted specifically for second-year black heritage students.

It offers a transformative journey to bolster confidence so that you can become a resilient leader. Throughout the academic year, you can expect to take part in skill-enhancement sessions, interactive engagements and community-building events.

Not in your second year? No problem! You can still get involved.

While the core programme is for our second-year students, there are many opportunities for first and third-year students at Nottingham Trent University to get involved in these events and workshops. Fill in our online form to hear about events.

What will you get out of it?

As well as the skills to become an effective leader, successful applicants will get access to valuable events and opportunities including:

  • a bespoke welcome event to connect with fellow participants and the chance to gain insight onto the programme
  • various workshops designed to develop a sense of belonging, empowerment and community
  • sessions to reflect on progress, accomplishments of personal and professional development
  • The opportunity to network with peers, leaders and employers as well as the provision of a skilled mentor throughout the programme
  • an independent employability learning module
  • opportunities to take part in extra-curricular activities for social and personal development
  • a celebration event to recognise your achievements.

You will also receive a letter of achievement signed by the Vice-Chancellor of Nottingham Trent University to acknowledge your participation in the programme.
