The January 2021 Cohort Application is closed.
Join APSE for an innovative and immersive leadership development program aimed at creating career pathways and succession planning for provider organizations.
It's no secret that one of the keys to providing quality employment services and achieving better outcomes is having competent staff. The current system, with its significant investment of time, energy, and dollars is not effectively matched to real world organizational structure or daily operations.
We are facing a work force crisis, with high turnover in the field. There is a lack of quality management and leadership development. We need to build viable career pathways and capacity to support career professionals in greater stability and continuity through higher retention rates.
The application is closed to applications for the next cohort of Emerging Leaders to begin in January 2021.
Emerging Leaders is a career development program to train, coach, and mentor the correct individuals and managers to enable direct service staff to provide high-quality employment services.
This one-year program is aimed at creating career pathways and succession planning for provider organizations, aimed at Mid-Level Managers.
Mid-level managers are key members of an organization. They not only provide stability and continuity through higher retention rates, they are in the unique position to affect all outcomes.
When you join Emerging Leaders, you join a cohort of peers across the nation.
