The Loughborough Management Programme (LMP) is designed for new and aspiring managers at Loughborough University.

The programme outlines the knowledge and skills required to be a line manager, or a people manager without line management responsibility, at the University. The programme explores the management culture at Loughborough, focusing on how the University works and the policies and procedures that support you as a manager to get the best from your people.

You will develop your understanding of:

  • how to manage by leading and motivating teams;
  • inspiring your team to progress into a high-performance team;
  • how to build on your own behaviours, skills, and abilities through development on inclusivity, emotional intelligence, and managing change.

The twelve-month programme consists of a combination of fixed and flexible sessions. The fixed sessions will be attended with your cohort allowing you to benefit from peer-group support and to meet other managers, whilst the flexible sessions allows you to complete the elements for your development based around your work schedule. These flexible sessions are on the current offering of workshops and are accessible via MyHR, which can be completed outside of the Loughborough Management Programme. Please find the information below on what are classed as 'Essential' workshops and what are classed as 'Supplementary'. All of the 'Essential' workshops must be completed in order to gain the internal certificate to this programme and the sessions run throughout the year. 

Please note that you are automatically booked onto your ‘Cohort’ sessions.  It is your responsibility to book yourself onto the ‘Essential’ sessions, with a selection of dates available so you can choose one that best suits your diary. 

As places on the programme are limited and it may take some time to gain a place, please feel free to complete the 'Essential' workshops in your own timeframe as they are all openly available through MyHR. You will then be exempted from completing these once on the programme. This may also be an appropriate approach for our aspiring managers.
