Accelerated career progression for technical talent to reach senior levels in the UK Government
Having leaders with experience of and expertise in technology is critical for the UK Government. Data suggested that technical people were not making progress to senior levels as quickly or in the numbers needed to ensure that there was expert tech input at the highest levels.
Designed and delivered a nine-month modular leadership development programme for technologists, to equip and develop those who had the aptitude and the desire to reach senior levels in Government. The programme included:
- developing tech leadership skills,
- understanding more about technology trends,
- visiting and learning from leading tech organisations and
- 1-2-1 and team coaching
The organisation can see a tangible increase in confidence and leadership from participants and more technologists are progressing into senior roles.
