Leadership and Management Training Programmes    

In partnership with Origos, AFM is offering two leadership and management training programmes:


A modular programme of four, one-day events, this programme is for established managers and allows delegates to:

  • understand the issues of the day                 
  • explore how effective they are
  • build leadership skills
  • identify causes and diagnose the challenges ahead
  • develop sustained relationships with peers in the UK's mutual sector

Each one-day event is hosted by a different AFM Member whose CEO will share their own personal careers and industry insights. Graduates of the Accelerate programme are offered a free one-night stay at the AFM Annual Conference. 

Accelerate 2018 is now up and running (Read a review from one of this year's delegates). If you would like to register your interest in the 2019 programme, please email Martin Shaw.

Stepping Up

This course is specifically designed for newly appointed managers, or those about to move into a role that require a step change of responsibility and support. It is run over six, one-day events and targets all the essential elements needed by managers today:

  • identifying motivation and leadership style
  • managing resource
  • delivering performance improvement
  • enabling career growth

In addition to being equipped with 'tools for the job', the Stepping Up programme enables the creation of enduring professional networks that are vital in our industry today. For further information about the programme, please email Martin Shaw
