Nova Wakefield District is the support agency for voluntary and community groups in Wakefield district. In July 2016, NOVA and Wakefield Council came together and offered senior managers within the area the opportunity to attend a Leadership Development Course. DMM Training and Development Ltd was approached to deliver the classroom element, as well as 121 coaching for those who wanted it. The delegates were also allocated a Mentor from various organisations and had the opportunity to attend talks on various public and volunteer ‘subjects of interest’.
The classroom element of the training was made up of 5 full day’s held at the Art House in Wakefield and it started at the end of October and the final session was held on the 13th June 2017.
