Senior Leadership Development

Ongoing training and development is essential for every organisation. For the Church, AAAD is tasked with ensuring that existing - and potential - senior clergy are provided with tools for growth throughout their priesthood. We run and outsource programmes tailored for specific groups within senior leadership.


Bishops Leadership Programme

Deans Leadership Programme

Strategic Leadership Development Programme

A five year programme designed to support the development of clergy identified as having potential for taking on significantly wider leadership responsibility in the future. The programme is also an ongoing process of discernment, creating space and structure for participants to listen to the call of God in their ongoing ministerial development. Above all, the SLDP is a Learning Community - where participants journey together in their development through shared learning experiences, prayer and fellowship.

Turning Up The Volume

Increasing the number of BAME clergy in senior appointments within the Church of England, the House of Bishops initiated TUTV in 2012. TUTV aims to help prepare participants for posts of wider responsibility through building on each individual's strengths and insights, as well as enhancing their understanding of the local and national contexts of senior roles.

Nurturing and Discerning Senior Leaders: Programme for  Traditional Catholic Clergy

This programme's aim is to help participants think through the issues they need to consider as they explore whether a calling to a more senior leadership role might be for them. We will seek to enhance their understanding of the various roles and the nature of the contemporary calling from the Church to those called to serve in them. In addition, we will provide assistance with application forms and spend some time drawing out the catholic voice in mission. Our hope is that, following the programme, participants will be more aware of the challenges of senior leadership within the Church, better equipped to apply for them and aware of their own development needs as they prepare for them.
