Leadership for Sustainable Development
After 20 years of running our acclaimed masters programme we are now exploring how to move to the next stage of scaling up our impact as an organisation. This means the masters programme in Leadership for Sustainable Development will not be running in September 2016. Instead, we are launching the School of System Change, offering a variety of audiences access to the skills, tools and community needed to implement system innovation, commencing in 2017.
Forum for the Future’s Masters course in Leadership for Sustainable Development provided graduates with the knowledge, skills and experience needed to launch a career in the sustainability sector. The 10-month, full-time course was based at the global sustainability non-profit’s London headquarters, where scholars benefited directly from our unique expertise, contacts and access to Partner companies, and included four six-week work placements. Highly regarded by employers, it had a 90% employment rate in sustainability roles within three months of graduating.
"The four six-week placements are what stand us apart from all other sustainability leadership courses and are a crucial element of the course. We believe this practical experience will give you the self-belief and competence to be an effective agent for change."
Over the last three years, graduates have gone on to fulfil sustainability roles within many well-known organisations, including WWF, Thames Water, Sustrans, Sainsbury’s, M&S, KPMG, Good Energy, Greenpeace, the GLA, Forestry Commission, Future Cities Catapult, DfID, and local and central government.
