NTU launch Sustainability and Inclusive Leadership (SAIL) pilot course

Nottingham Business School (NBS) and the Green Academy at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) have developed a fully-funded, accredited short course to support managers and employees within local small businesses to enhance their personal appreciation and become a change-maker, post-COVID-19, in their own life and work.

The High-Level Skills programme is part-funded by the European Social fund via D2N2 and offers dedicated support, advice, and funding to help businesses up-skill employees and access the wealth of graduate talent in the area.

It is the only ESF-funded programme in the D2N2 region dedicated to addressing high-level skills needs in small or medium-sized businesses.

The D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership is the private sector-led partnership of business, local authorities, skills and training providers, and community and voluntary services which promotes economic growth across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

Its work is partly funded by a European Union allocation of around €250million in European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF).

This is made up of European Social Fund (ESF), European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), and European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) funding streams.

Sustainability and Inclusive Leadership Course

The Sustainability and Inclusive Leadership (SAIL) course will be delivered over two days, and attendees will be required to attend both sessions:

  • Thursday 25 June, 9.15am-4.30pm
  • Friday 3 July, 9.15am-1.30pm

NTU are currently delivering learning virtually, and this course will be delivered via Microsoft Teams.

By taking part, attendees will gain an understanding of:

  • how climate and COVID-19 bounce off one another
  • how business is affected by the climate, and vice versa
  • the impact different sectors, such as food and drink, have on our climate, and vice versa
  • climate change mitigation tools for your role at work or/and business function
  • recovery and change strategies
  • solutions with the highest impact: in your personal life and in your role at work

Attendees will also receive support in developing an action plan to apply what they’ve learned on the course to their business.

Those that complete the course will also receive a full certificate issued by The Carbon Literacy Trust in Manchester, and the opportunity to receive an Ofqual qualification.

Businesses interested in attending can register for the pilot course by visiting the event page and completing a short expression of interest form.
