Who is Summer School for?

Summer School was immense. Thank you @AcademiWales staff, facilitators, speakers and fellow delegates who made it career defining and inspiring.' Emma Reeves-McAll, Tai Pawb

Summer School is aimed at senior managers and leaders from across the public and third sector in Wales, who influence and shape the delivery of our services and who are engaged in leading change.

It is particularly relevant for those who are working through challenging times and seeking to make significant improvements to their organisational business.
