TALENT programme launches leadership scheme for women in technical roles

Current or aspiring technicians keen to develop their leadership skills are invited to apply for a new scheme launched as part of the Research-England funded TALENT programme.

The scheme is the UK’s first leadership programme designed for people in technical roles who identify as women.

The Herschel Programme for Women in Technical Leadership is a six-month programme which will have modules on self-awareness, leading in a technical environment, negotiation skills, and navigating the organisation. There’ll also be opportunities to network.

As of today, applications are open and those who are interested have until Friday 5 November to apply. The programme is scheduled to start in January 2022.
