The Transformative Leadership Programme (TLP) is a 10-module accredited leadership training programme funded by the Peace IV programme through Belfast City Council (BCC).

What is it?

The Transformative Leadership Programme (TLP) aims to build leadership skills and connections between people living and working in interface areas of Belfast in order to make change possible (click here for course content). 

Who is it for?

Whether you’re a local resident, a local politician or working for a public service in the community, you can join the programme.

What will I get out of it?

An ILM Level 3 accreditation, providing skills and tools for working with others to addressing issues facing interface communities. 

As part of the wider Belfast City Council Transform for Change programme, participants will also have the opportunity to plan projects together and take part in local and Belfast-wide events organised by the council once they have completed the programme.

Where and when is it on?

The programme will be delivered online due to COVID19. 

The course is made up of 10 x 2 hour modules, which will be held online on Zoom on 5 Wednesdays on the following dates: 28 Oct, 4 Nov, 11 Nov, 18 Nov, 25 Nov. Each day will comprise a module in the morning 10am - 12pm and a module in the afternoon 1.30pm - 3.30pm. A further date is offered on Weds 2 Dec to provide you with support with your accreditation, and for the course group to meet with Belfast City Council to plan your group project. In addition, we provide participants with materials for 10 hours of home learning.
