First Class Third Sector

A development programme for Third Sector leaders and managers

Download PDF

The Third Sector is leading the way in the development of its managers. Its leaders recognise that navigating these rapidly changing times requires innovation, entrepreneurialism and values-driven growth - all areas where the Third Sector excels.

But to help us through the changing times ahead, our sector needs individualised, responsive and accessible training that recognises both the unique skills and the unique challenges within our sector: the diversity of staff and the diversity of experience; the diverse demands of job roles, the time pressures.

And that's exactly what the First Class Third Sector offers.

Following a successful pilot in March 2015, the First Class Third Sector has now reached more than 70 individuals spanning some 25 organisations in three locations in England - London, Cambridge and Bristol. Created, designed and delivered with Third Sector expertise and input from the outset, the First Class Third Sector is an exciting new approach to professional development designed for colleagues who already have experience of leading a team. 

The First Class Third Sector experience will help you lead, manage, inspire and innovate in these rapidly changing and increasingly challenging times.
