Application Deadline: Ongoing
Commonwealth100 is open to young leaders who are from a Commonwealth country, or who currently live, work or study in a Commonwealth country.
Commonwealth100 is open to young people, aged 18+, from across the Commonwealth. You may be at the beginning of your career or in Higher or Further Education.
Commonwealth100 programme outcomes:
- Produce a more socially conscious generation of leaders
- Create a network of young leaders in touch with each other
- Foster current and future global partnerships between young leaders
- Frame a fresh, bold, principled, networked Commonwealth of the future
Many young people today recognize that we need a new approach to leadership. That’s why we worked with over 1,000 young leaders to discover the skills we need when Commonwealth celebrates its centenary in 2031.
Using an online platform, you will hear stories from senior and emerging leaders who have had to lead complex change.
You will take part in interactive exercises and discussions with peers from across the Commonwealth. And you will read compelling articles, which explore the skills you need to be successful in the 21st century.
All participants who complete the programme will receive the Open Source Leadership Badge, which can be used as a record of your achievement on your CV or online profiles.
The programme is hosted online.
Though the course originally ran in three-week-long cohorts, starting in 2019 it will run in seven-week-long cohorts. It takes between three to six hours to complete the course, which can be done flexibly over the cohort period. The course dates for 2019 are:
- 4 January – 22 February
- 1 March – 19 April
- 3 May – 21 June
This will continue to run in a similar pattern through 2020.
How to Register:
Commonwealth100 runs in seven week cohorts. After filling in a short registration form, you will receive an email with more information about your cohort.
