PCSO represents South Wales Police in new Leadership Programme for Wales

Last Updated: 20/12/2019

On the 10th December, Police & Crime Commissioner Alun Michael and Deputy Chief Constable Jeremy Vaughan were pleased to join The Future Generations Commissioner for Wales for the launch of the inaugural Future Generations Leadership Academy.

The Future Generations Leadership Academy will be delivered in partnership with Uprising Cymru and Simply Do and is a ten-month pilot programme with the Well-being of Future Generations Act at its heart. It aims to primarily develop leaders across the public sector through a programme which allows for the practical application of the knowledge and skills gained during the programme in a safe “real learning environment”. Key features of the programme include:

  • Reverse Mentoring for current leaders to learn and upskill from future leaders
  • Workshops such as Future Trends and Influencing Others
  • Leadership Summer School
  • Internship opportunity with a public body in Wales

A total of 14 organisations across Wales will participate in the first cohort including South Wales Police which, following a short internal application and selection process, will be represented by PCSO Alexandra Fitzgerald who works with communities in Pentwyn, with her involvement sponsored jointly by the Commissioner and Chief Constable.

Speaking about the Academy, Police & Crime Commissioner Alun Michael said:

“Upon learning of this opportunity, both myself and the Chief Constable were keen for South Wales Police to participate in this new leadership programme and were in complete agreement that this should be through an appropriate PCSO candidate, reflecting the importance of Neighbourhood Policing to our approach in South Wales, which sits at the heart of our joint Police & Crime Plan. 

“As early adopters of the principles set out in the Well-being of Future Generations Act, it already features in our South Wales Police approach to community safety with partners and the programme will further enhance the knowledge and skills required for effective leadership and management in the complex environments faced by our officers and PCSOs.

“I am therefore extremely pleased to be able to jointly sponsor Alexandra’s participation in the first cohort of the Young Leaders Academy programme and look forward to seeing her progress throughout 2020.”

Other organisations included in the Academy include Arup, Wales Millennium Centre, the National Assembly for Wales, Public Health Wales and Celsa Steel who have come together to support this programme.
