Exeter Leaders Award

Students receiving their Exeter Award and Exeter Leaders Award certificates

The Exeter Leaders Award is for students who are keen to develop their leadership skills. It will help you reflect on your leadership style and techniques, and set clear, achievable goals for self-development.

Leadership and achievement

The Exeter Leaders Award is an extracurricular award that recognises leadership roles you've undertaken during your time at the University of Exeter. It also provides a framework to help you develop as a leader. To achieve the Leaders Award you must:

  • complete the Exeter Award;
  • demonstrate leadership skills and attributes via a designated leadership role, undertaken whilst studying at Exeter;
  • attend a programme of leadership development workshops;
  • complete a reflective application form;
  • deliver a presentation to a panel showing how you've developed as a leader.

 

Completing The Exeter Award is a pre-requisite for registering for the Exeter Leaders Award. However, there is nothing to stop you attending Leaders Award activities in readiness – they will then show as completed in your Leaders Award profile when you register. See our FAQs for more information.

Find out more about getting started and have a look at the Leaders Award structure for more information on the activities needed to complete the award.

When you've completed the Leaders Award, you can apply for a bursary to study for an ILM leadership qualification.
