The UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office is inviting applications for the Chevening CLORE Fellowship for Mid-Career Professionals in 2021.
The Chevening/Clore Fellowship is a tailored programme of leadership development which aims to enrich and transform cultural practice and engagement by developing leadership potential, acumen and skills.
The Chevening/Clore Fellowship brings together some of the most creative and dynamic cultural leaders in the UK and internationally for an intense personal and professional learning experience unlike any other. The Chevening/Clore Fellowship will support you to be the leader you have the potential to be, through in-depth learning, tailored to your individual needs, aspirations and circumstances.
The fellowship runs in 2022, from March – September 2022, with a loose framework designed to boost the development of exceptional cultural leaders at a pivotal point in their career. It is adaptive and self-guided, so you’ll need to be highly motivated and deeply curious. The Chevening/Clore Fellowship is a learnt not a taught programme, it is experiential, grounded in practice, and underpinned by contemporary leadership theories and approaches.
