On days 1 to 4 delegates attend a residential course where they work together in teams to develop their personal and collective skills.
On days 5 to 365 the teams embark on a challenging journey to deliver a business focused project of their choice.
At the 2014 West Midlands Academy the Power Rangers team chose Interconnect as its project. Claire Tomlinson of HM Courts and Tribunals Service writes about the team's experience over the past 11 months.
If you feel inspired by Claire's story and would like to be part of the 2016 Academy, please keep a look out for the invitation which will be sent to departments in early October.
