CPC Emerging Leaders is open to cultural leaders or managers with up to 5 years’ experience who are living and/or working in Norfolk or Suffolk. 

Applications for this programme will open in April 2021 when a Key Information Pack including the dates of the programme and how to apply will be made available on this page. The anticipated start date for this programme is October 2021 and will run for 6 months.

To be eligible for the programme, you must be:

  • Living or working in the local authority areas of Norfolk and Suffolk
  • Be committed to taking part in a significant period of directed and self-directed learning in order to strengthen and develop their individual leadership practice
