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. 

You’ll have the chance to work on a small collaborative project with others on your course

You’ll meet and build relationships with people from other backgrounds or sectors who are interested in addressing interface issues
