Black and Asian Leadership Initiative (BALI)

The offer this year includes:

  • An initial 2 day residential (25th & 26th March 2019, Birmingham), introducing the concept of cultural competence
  • Support in shaping your learning journey
  • A follow up one-day workshop (21st May 2019, Birmingham) on how to step up to a strategic role
  • Mentoring support for participants who identify this as a preference

The programme is aimed at experienced middle leaders working in children’s services, who identify themselves as being from a black or minority ethnic background and have the support of the organisation that employs them. An email will be sent to your line manager or other relevant senior officer, when you enter their contact details as part of the application process, asking whether your application is supported. Places are limited and should the programme be oversubscribed, priority will be given to applicants who are able to make the most compelling case for being offered a place.

This will be judged by reference to the following criteria:

  • Your commitment to a career in children’s services
  • Your potential to become a senior leader in children’s services
  • The match between this programme and your own development needs


The application round will be open from 5th December and closes on 25th January 2019. This is also the deadline for supporting statements from line managers. Late applications cannot be accepted. Once your application has been submitted and the round is closed, you will be contacted to confirm the outcome.
