The Altemus Leadership Programme

Programmes (1)

In pursuit of its mission, Altemus runs the Altemus Leadership Programme (ALP). The ALP provides a rich environment for personal growth and leadership development by combining academic excellence, experiential training and real-world pragmatism.

It ascribes to a holistic, inward-outward personalized approach. The programme consists of an intensive residential training in core soft skills and leadership competencies (self-awareness and understanding, visioning, goal-setting and planning, ethics and integrity, communication skills, building and leading teams, and creative problem-solving), and a practicum (a community service exercise and outdoor trekking).

The ‘Altemus experience’ is a series of carefully sequenced and integrated activities designed to increase young people’s leadership knowledge and skills, as well their self-esteem, confidence, resilience, adaptability, openness and conscientiousness.

The programme is highly interactive and participatory.  Its methodology includes presentations, group work, discussions, simulations, case studies, psychometric testing, assessments, role-playing, co-operative games, meetings with role-model leaders, reflection periods, journaling, one-on-one coaching and outdoor experiential learning.
