We're delighted to announce that we're now accepting applications to our 2024 Leading Cross-Sector Partnerships programme.

Today’s complex societal challenges, spanning refugee crises, poor education outcomes, and climate change, cannot be tackled by governments alone. At times of turbulence and uncertainty, how can public officials effectively collaborate with external partner organisations, in both private and non-for-profit sectors, to unlock efficient and successful programmes? 

Leading Cross-Sector Partnerships is an interactive, three-day programme designed to enable public leaders to adopt a more strategic approach to contract management and deliver more impactful partnerships. Blending theory with practice, this programme explores the fundamentals of cross-sector partnerships, highlighting innovative case studies that embed impact measurement and relational practice to achieve meaningful social change. Participants will develop frameworks and practical tools - including template clauses - to move partnerships towards success and drive positive impact.  

Leading Cross-Sector Partnerships

This course is open to mid-senior policymakers in strategic partnership roles, or those who are about to take on roles that require an understanding of Public-Private Partnerships and the public contracting landscape for social programmes.

We also welcome those at the top of their department who wish to gain a more rounded understanding of cross-sector partnerships and market stewardship. Additionally, the course is open to those working in philanthropy, in the not-for-profit or private sector who wish to gain a deeper understanding of partnership options with government.
