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.
