Arts University Bournemouth has collaborated with NextGen Skills Academy to create the Aspiring Leaders programme.

NextGen Aspiring Leaders is a professional development programme aimed at individuals in the games, animation and VFX sectors, who have progressed into managerial positions and are responsible for leading creative teams.

AUB research confirmed that it is notoriously difficult for leaders to manage the performance of their teams in a creative industry setting, without feeling that they are breaking the important bonds that keep the community ticking over.

The programme uses a combination of workshops, masterclasses, and self-learning guides, to create an understanding of how to handle these team management issues, as well as other challenges facing the creative leader.

The programme runs weekly from Thursday 14th April – Thursday 9th June at the Jerwood Space, London.
