A programme run by Nottingham Trent University, and supported by the European Social Fund via the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership, is helping improve the career prospects of women across the D2N2 region.
The Women in Leadership programme is a free, 3-day course designed to help women in small and medium-sized businesses (SME) to develop their careers and their capability to manage and lead within their organisations.
The programme is part of the Priority Skills for D2N2 SMEs project which enables small and medium-sized enterprises to access free bespoke, employer-led training, career coaching and advice to up-skill their employees in vocational and high-level technical skills.
One of the course’s alumni is Claire Lowe, a personal injury solicitor at Hopkins Solicitors LLP. Managing the personal injury department lead to her interest in NTU’s Women in Leadership course.
This project is part-funded by the European Social Fund as part of the 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme in England.
