The Student Leadership Development Programme combines leadership, campaigning, and activism training into one. Its purpose is to give you an opportunity to build your skills as leaders looking to create impact in Exeter and beyond. This is the first session in the Student Leadership Development Programme, and centres around RESILIENCE. The day is split into 3 parts. Part 1: You will begin with defining and identifying your resilience. Part 2: Next we will hear from one of two speakers who will give you the chance to think about resilience in action. Read more about them below. Part 3: You will deliver a presentation in groups about your own approach to resilience. Lunch will be provided. This is for all student leaders (e.g. society committee members, department officers, leadership election candidates 2023) or any students interested in leadership.
