Also of interest may be one of our industry specific women’s development programmes:

Women in the Fire Service UK Women’s Development Programme

The WFS Women’s Development Programme is a bespoke programme to help women identify clear, practical and realistic steps to develop self-confidence in their professional and personal lives. Coaches Jenny Pollock and Emma Shute of Women to Work, explore topics including taking control and challenging limiting beliefs, and how to identify strategies to build personal resilience.

The programme consists of three half-day workshops on Zoom over three months.

“I felt inspired hearing from women who’ve overcome challenges. I realised I wasn’t alone holding myself back, but I’m the only person who can change my situation.”

“Engaging, empowering and energetic. A recipe for success in helping women to be authentic and achieve their full potential.”

“I am a Firefighter on development and this programme has been very beneficial. Going for promotion will definitely be an option for me as I now have the tools and confidence to do that.”
