Transforming Leadership Programme
We have partnered with Disability Arts Online and Manchester Met University to create a development program and coaching culture for emerging learning disabled leaders, the first of its kind.
The programme, Transforming Leadership, sees nine learning disabled leaders employed in positions across all aspects of theatre making including becoming theatre directors, being the voice of Access All Areas’ social media platforms and co-chairs of its trustee board.
