LSE Manager Programme

The LSE 2030 Strategy commits to supporting the development of all our staff, strengthening and enhancing the supporting services and infrastructure across the School to enable the whole LSE community to thrive and perform at their best, and ensuring we continue to attract the highest quality researchers, educators and professional services staff from around the world.

The LSE Manager programme is designed to support Professional Services Staff (PSS) to be as effective as possible in the people management part of their role. The programme is designed for all new PSS people managers who have either:

  • been promoted into a people management role at LSE for the first time or
  • been appointed externally to the School to a people management role.

There are now two versions of the programme; a blended version and a self-access version.

The blended version is a 6 -12-month guided development programme which includes a number of core elements designed to support you in developing into your management role. Delivery is through a combination of lunch time workshops, drop-in sessions, coaching opportunities, personal reading and online modules.  

The self-access version of the programme is designed purely for study on your own, in your own time. The programme contains 12-14 hours of self-study materials. This version is designed for those with roles that make attendance on the blended version more difficult.

You can find out more about each version by downloading the related information sheets below.
