The 12-month programme is designed for leaders in the social sector with over 6 years' experience who seek to build their leadership capabilities and make a lasting difference within the sector. Since 2015 FiMT has funded Specialist Fellowships for those working in the Armed Forces Charity sector


The Clore Experienced Leader Programme helps leaders to build their social leadership capabilities and increase their self-awareness and resilience. Previous cohorts have shown that the programme is effective and note an increase in their confidence, leadership skills, collaboration, an increased ability to manage change and uncertainty and peer support from other fellows.

“I found the Experienced Leader Programme to be really inspiring and enjoyable. I met some wonderful people also in leadership roles but operating in different spheres to the military charity sector. It was fascinating and very informative to hear how things are done differently. My two deputies participated in the Cobseo Emerging Leadership Programme. I believe that we have all ‘grown’, as a result, to the benefit of our organization. We are certainly more outward-looking and more collaborative with other organizations. I believe we are more ambitious in terms of setting goals that will benefit our beneficiaries.” Anna Wright, CEO of Naval Families Federation is an FiMT-funded Fellow.
