Published Friday, 29th October, 2021 in University news

Circl gives 18–24 year olds from under-represented backgrounds the chance to earn a qualification in leadership skills whilst learning alongside managers from top businesses such as: Google, Facebook, Uber, Etsy, Sony, Allen & Overy, British Land, Hello Fresh, eBay and Innocent.

They want to support young people whose background would traditionally be a limiting factor in them becoming a leader (primarily low-income households amongst other factors e.g. first-generation to go to university, disability, ethnic minority, single parent family etc).

This qualification is worth over £1000 but free for you and it looks amazing on your CV!

How it works & what you'll get

You'll be matched 1-1 with a manager and together you'll learn the 'coach approach to leadership' and use your new skills to help each other set and achieve ambitious goals.

There are six 2-hour workshops and individual coaching sessions that run over 3-5 months, and you'll also meet your professional 1-1 match in between each session to coach and be coached by them. It's only a small time commitment that can fit around your studies/ work.

What do I do?

Please only apply if you match the programme’s criteria in some way as per the questions on the form. The Circl team will then get in touch to let you know more about the programme and answer any questions you have.

Register your interest by 3pm on Wednesday 3rd November and there are onlya very limited number of spaces left.
