The Chevening Clore Leadership Fellowship

The Chevening/Clore Fellowship is a partnership between the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office and Clore Leadership, offering mid-career professionals in the arts and culture sector an exceptional opportunity to undertake an individually tailored leadership programme in the UK. The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office funds up to five international fellows to become part of a cohort of approximately 20 fellows, from across the UK and internationally, on the Clore Fellowship Programme. The programme has been shaping exceptional cultural leaders for the last 16 years.

The Chevening/Clore Fellowship is a tailored programme of leadership development which aims to enrich and transform cultural practice and engagement by developing leadership potential, acumen and skills.

The Chevening/Clore Fellowship brings together some of the most creative and dynamic cultural leaders in the UK and internationally for an intense personal and professional learning experience unlike any other. The Chevening/Clore Fellowship will support you to be the leader you have the potential to be, through in-depth learning, tailored to your individual needs, aspirations and circumstances.

The fellowship runs in 2022, from March – September 2022, with a loose framework designed to boost the development of exceptional cultural leaders at a pivotal point in their career.  It is adaptive and self-guided, so you’ll need to be highly motivated and deeply curious. The Chevening/Clore Fellowship is a learnt not a taught programme, it is experiential, grounded in practice, and underpinned by contemporary leadership theories and approaches.

Course/programme structure

As a part of Chevening/Clore Fellowship, each international fellow will undertake an individually tailored programme based in the UK which will include:

  • Two residential leadership courses in March and September 2022
  • Three day-long non-residential skills-based workshops
  • A two-day ‘Urban Intensive ’ team project
  • A 360° leadership profile
  • A four – six week secondment in a UK based cultural organisation, (normally in an organisation or field very different to your usual workplace or practice) where you’ll be working on a ‘live’ project set by your host organisation;
  • Bespoke learning opportunities through conferences, courses and study visits and peer/sector networking.
  • Focused support from a mentor or coach.
  • Thought leadership exploration through a written provocation paper.

The Fellowship starts in March 2022, with fellows travelling between their home country and the UK to undertake the 1stfellowship residential in March 2022 and then returning to the UK in May 2022 to undertake the majority of the fellows’ individual training and development programmes, including; workshops, their secondments, mentoring, attendance at courses and conferences, and the 2nd Fellowship residential course.
