Public value leadership


Our co-created programmes with governments, public and private sector organisations, enable leaders to deliver lasting value and better serve society.

Transformational learning for sustainable change

We help public value leaders to address challenges and seize the opportunities that come with them.

In partnership with governments, public and private sector organisations, we co-create custom programmes that enable leaders to quickly adapt to a changing environment, leverage emerging public-private relationships, broaden their leadership capabilities, and find new ways to serve society.

With a deep understanding of public value leadership, we know how to help organisations adapt to changing contexts and deliver on their core purpose.

Faculty, experts and contributors

We enlist expertise from across the School and wider University of Oxford to ensure the multi-faceted and complex challenges tackled during our programmes are underpinned by world-class research.

Deep partnerships for long-term value

Our client work in the public value space with individual organisations, whole sectors, networks and governments, supports strategic transformation in areas such as education, policy execution, government leadership and public service delivery.

Education and vocational training are key to the prospects of individual children and young learners all over the world.

We are proud to have been working in partnership with The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) since 2017 to design and deliver a series of leadership programmes for the Further Education (FE) sector in the United Kingdom.

Over 150 CEOs, Principals, Chairs of Boards and senior managers from FE colleges have benefited from programmes designed to deepen leadership across the sector, helping college leaders plan and adapt for a future of complex change.
