Accelerated Directors Development Scheme

The Accelerated Director Development Scheme (ADDS) helps you develop your potential, accelerate your career, embrace change and improve the lives of all.

ADDS is a nationally recognised CEO led collaborative approach to developing compassionate inclusive senior leaders who have the skills, confidence and drive to comfortably work across boundaries and build great relationships in order to transform how services are delivered to our communities in Hertfordshire and West Essex.

ADDS is a nationally recognised collaborative approach to senior leadership development. The overall aim of the scheme is to identify, develop and prepare high potential leaders to make the transition from operational to strategic leadership and to progress to an Executive Director level role within 9-36 months of starting the scheme

ADDS offers you a unique collaborative approach to senior leader development, combining CEO/MD sponsorship, leadership development and job opportunity.

We are committed to improving diversity at Board level. To support this commitment, we have developed an evidence based fair and inclusive nomination, assessment and development process.

Participant Feedback

ADDS allows participants to apply their learning directly to their day to day roles. This aligns directly with our philosophy of talent development, helping colleagues reach their potential and aspire to more senior roles within the organisation.

The scheme provides me with a window into the world of being a director, meeting the leaders and understanding their drives and seeing their humanity CEO mentor pushed me, inspired me, motivated me
