Deadline for applications for 2015 Leadership Programme

12 November 2014

This is a reminder to all LOC members that the deadline for applications for the 2015 Leadership Skills for Optical Professionals is fast approaching.

The closing date for receipt of applications is Monday, 24 November at 5pm. 

LOCSU will be funding up to 10 places on the 2015 cohort. We are particularly interested to hear from optical professionals who meet one of the following:

  • LOC officers or committee members who have identified a research project that would benefit their local optical community
  • Optical professionals with a keen interest in leadership, and who would be interested in undertaking a research project with a national focus
  • Optical professionals with a keen interest in public health, and who would be interested in undertaking a national research project

If you would like to be considered for a funded place please complete the application form and return to jacquehudson@locsu.co.uk.

Interviews will be conducted by Conference Call on Monday, 8 and Tuesday, 9 December. Please indicate any preferences for dates and times in your covering letter.

Recommending the course, Jane Gray, who completed the Leadership Programme in its first year and returned in 2014 as joint module leader said:  “I would recommend the Leadership Module to any optical professional who is already actively involved and wants to be more effective. For me, the course showed how much more effective we can be with this enhanced skill set and knowledge. There is no other course of this type available specifically for professionals within the optical industry. I can honestly say that I would not be where I am today professionally without the LOCSU Leadership Programme. I benefitted enormously from the course.” – Jane Gray, member of East Yorkshire LOC.

If you have any questions about the content of the course visit the dedicated page on the LOCSU website or contact LOCSU Learning and Development Consultant, Gill Brabner, gillbrabner@locsu.co.uk.
