BALI Application

Applications for the Black and Asian Leadership Initiative are now open.
  • The application window for the Black and Asian Leadership Initiative cohorts 19 and 20 is now open!
  • The deadline to apply is Friday 13th October 2023. Any applications submitted after this will not be counted in this application window.
  • Each application must have an accompanying sponsor form submitted by your sponsor by Friday 13th October 2023 to be considered complete. Once you complete your application form an email will automatically be sent to your sponsor with a link to fill out the sponsor form.

Cohorts are non-transferable, only in exceptional circumstances may we consider moving you to a future cohort if you cannot attend all three days. This is due to the BALI programme being oversubscribed and The Staff College (which is a non-for-profit) preventing a loss of income due to late absences.
