BVAA Future Leaders Programme
The Future Leaders Programme is BVAA's bespoke programme that develops talented individuals - nominated by their employers - as potential future leaders of the British Valve Industry.
Since its introduction in 2016, over 60 delegates have successfully completed the FLP course, with many rapidly progressing through their company hierarchy into leadership roles.
FLP delegates undertake a series of Personal Development courses, valve-industry experiences, arrange technical and commercial excellence presentations, receive free BVAA technical training, receive a range of visits to manufacturing centres, R&D and engineering excellence sites, refineries, power stations etc. and are exposed to first-class industry networking opportunities.
BVAA also supports first-year professional registration. Qualifying delegates attain a formal qualification approved by the prestigious Chartered Management Institute. The programme closes with a formal presentation to the massed ranks of the BVAA at our Annual General Meeting.
Selection takes place at the beginning of every calendar year, and it involves approximately 20 days out of the office, plus a small number of assignments and assessments with their own line managers.
If you would like to know more about joining the BVAA, contact Rob Bartlett for a no obligation, initial discussion on 01295 221270.
