The next generation of leaders – many of whom are studying at university now – are preparing to live and work in a fast, fluid and disrupted world. If they are going to thrive in their careers and stand up as leaders in society, they will need the skills and competencies to bring different people together – from across boundaries – to solve common problems.
Our programmes are highly experiential, exposing students to different perspectives, places, organizations and challenges – often at a global scale. Underpinned by robust methodologies, thought leadership and learning frameworks, they give students the skills and experiences to become leaders who can make an impact – at work and in society.
“In our ever more complex and interconnected world which has no obvious historical parallel, Common Purpose has developed a breakthrough idea about the importance of cultural intelligence in order to navigate both this new world and its contradictions. It has important implications and raises questions about our current systems for those of us involved in educating and developing our future global citizens.”
Our leadership competency framework has been developed with leading employers and experts to ensure that our programmes speak to the needs of employers, society and ultimately to students’ future success. We design, deliver and assess our programmes against this framework, and measure students’ learning and development as leaders who are:
Based on a longitudinal assessment of students who have completed our programmes in the last 15 years:
Individual modules, delivered online in real-time. Our bite-sized content can be run standalone or stacked to create a unique learning pathway for your students. It can also be embedded into your existing programming.
Online, social learning which students complete flexibly with a diverse group of their peers. Our asynchronous courses enable students to develop their leadership skills through self-directed online learning. These courses combine new methods of content delivery and interactive, experiential learning.
High-touch synchronous programmes
Highly interactive leadership programmes delivered both in-person and online. Our high-touch synchronous programmes bring the best of what Common Purpose has been doing for over 30 years, ensuring students develop the skills and competencies, and gain the global experience, they need for their future success.
We also work with many universities to develop customized learning solutions, bringing the best of what we offer to address their specific learning outcomes, skills and competencies or graduate attributes.
