BALEAP Leadership and Management SIG

This SIG has developed out of sustained member interest in discussing and sharing information on a wide range of matters related to leading and managing EAP courses, programmes and centres. The 2017 BALEAP conference featured a workshop on starting a leadership & management network, as well as a Management Panel Discussion. It was felt that the lively exchanges during those sessions were well worth continuing. The SIG is aimed both at those currently leading or managing courses and at those interested in or about to assume these types of role.
