10GM - A joint venture to support the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in Greater Manchester

Learning and Professional Development 

As part of our Workforce Development Programme, we are creating some exciting new opportunities for learning and professional development, designed specifically for people in Greater Manchester’s VCSE sector. From January-June 2024, we are offering a range of flexible leadership learning workshops, as well as the option of more intensive development activities for both leaders and emerging leaders.  

Join our 2024 VCSE Leadership Development Programme! 

Does your role involve leading others – either a team or group of people, or a whole organisation?
Are you working within a small or medium-sized VCSE organisation or group within Greater Manchester?
Do you want a safe and nurturing space to reflect, connect, share, and learn with other leaders?
From January-June 2024 we want to bring together a group of people with experience of VCSE leadership, to co-design and participate in a series of leadership learning workshops. Both the co-design process and the learning workshop sessions themselves will be facilitated by Kerry Tottingham from A Brilliant Thing CIC.  

“These Leadership Workshops are designed for leaders in the VCSE sector who, despite limited resources and time (and lots of plate spinning!), play a vital role in inspiring teams and driving change across Greater Manchester. This series comprises creative and practical development sessions tailored for experienced leaders. Together we will share, enrich, and develop processes and practices, that strengthen organisations, support our teams and develop both our personal resilience and network of peer support.”

We have 20 places available in this group. We'll share information on how to apply on 7 December.

Online Open Workshops

Our open workshops are a fantastic opportunity to develop your knowledge of key aspects of leadership and workforce development. Each workshop will feature speakers from Greater Manchester’s VCSE sector – giving you access to practical examples, case studies and the chance to learn from peers in the sector. Topics we will be exploring include: 


Personal wellbeing and resilience. 


Leading with values and congruence. 


 Building inclusive cultures. 


Using data to drive decisions.  


Supporting workforce wellbeing.


Talent development and succession planning.

Emerging Leaders Learning and Personal Development Programme

Form January-June 2024, we will bring together a group of emerging leaders and a specialist delivery partner, to co-design and deliver a series of exciting learning and professional development activities. We anticipate this will be a closed cohort group of up to 12 participants.
