Event description

Description

As part of the Aleto Foundation's highly acclaimed 7th Leadership Programme, our Trustees, in collaboration with BT, invite you to an exclusive opportunity to get a taste of what young people will experience over a 3 day period.

Reserve your place today - Limited guest places available.

Over the past 7 years, we have witnessed the success of our annual leadership targeted at high-achieving university undergraduates from tough reality, state-educated backgrounds. These young people are usually the first in their families to aspire to a degree and often they are the first from their schools to gain a place at a Russell Group university. Following the ‘boot camp’ approach we deliver a course of a few days duration designed to enhance the competences, knowledge and skills of our attendees. The contacts and skills learned in only a few days equip the students to return to university armed with the confidence to compete effectively with their privately educated peers.

We have come a long way since our first Leadership Programme in 2011. That year we worked with 38 carefully selected young people of African and Caribbean descent who demonstrated leadership potential but who lacked the social advantages of many of their peers. Since then we have positively altered the lives of over 300 young people aged 18-25 who are now members of the Aleto Foundation alumni network. That network, in keeping with the spirit of leadership, provides help and support to its members and new recruits to the programme. The proof of the programme’s success lies in the degree results and subsequent employment of our alumni, results which defy the statistical expectations for their peer group.
