Middle Manager Academy North 2018

Are you looking for the opportunity to think differently about your position as a middle manager and how to cope with the impact of change? Would you like to work as part of a cross-departmental team and develop the skills needed to meet the challenges of the 21st century?

The Middle Manager Academy (MMA) North 2018 will be taking place in Huddersfield this autumn and could be the opportunity for you.

What is the Middle Manager Academy North?

MMA delegates 2017

The MMA North is a unique cross-departmental development opportunity that has been designed to equip HEOs and SEOs (or equivalent grades) with the personal, professional and collective leadership skills needed to meet the​ current and future demands of the Civil Service. The academy aims to foster a more resilient and collaborative leadership culture amongst civil servants from departments across the North West, North East and Yorkshire and the Humber. The MMA North will provide you with the opportunity to support Civil Service transformation, whilst embedding and enhancing your skills. It will also encourage you to inspire others to become the leaders of the future.

The MMA North 2018 will start with four learning and development days and there will be a mix of self-awareness, personal development and ideas production across the event with a number of keynote speakers and panellists. Over the following 12 month period, you will collaborate in cross-departmental teams to tackle challenging business issues that departments and agencies in the North are currently facing. 

How can I get involved?

Departments and agencies have been allocated places based on their proportional representation in the North West or North East and Yorkshire and the Humber region.

Departments are responsible for deciding how their places are filled. If you are interested in this opportunity, please look out for communications within your organisation or speak to your line manager.

      There are 70 places available for the MMA North 2018. We have given each region (i.e., North West; North East and Yorkshire and the Humber) an equal number of places, which have then been allocated to departments based on their proportional representation in the region and their engagement with Civil Service Local.

      We will respond to specific queries about department allocations on an individual basis.

      Kieran,
      The closing date for the Academy application from your department was the 6th September. Sorry that you've missed this year's deadline.

      Each department arranged how to fill the spaces they were allocated so if you weren't made aware of the opportunity, it might be worth asking how it was advertised in your area.

      Regards,
      Paul.

      Marie,

      The Middle Managers academy is designed for HO & SO grade staff. The FLM Academy which has been on this week is designed for Band D (EO) managers.

      Hope this clarifies the levels they are designed for.

      Cheers
      Paul.
