British Council calls applications for Future Leaders Connect Program. Future Leaders Connect is the British Council’s long-term global network of emerging policy leaders. Members from more than 13 countries are working to make substantial change through policy-making, campaigns and leadership to tackle some of the most pressing issues we face today.


This year’s programme will run from Monday 11 October to Friday 19 November 2021. It will include all the elements of previous years – the taught component, networking, relationship-building and action plan development – delivered digitally. The difficulty of meeting face-to-face at this time has given us an additional real-world challenge that will only inspire our future global leaders.

British Council Future Leaders Connect Program will consist of self guided study, team work and live online sessions. Participants will commit to spending an average of 10 hours a week on the programme, for six weeks. The launch of the programme will take place on Monday 11 October and subsequent live sessions will be scheduled weekly on a Tuesday and Wednesday from 09.00 – 10.30 UK time.


Members will benefit from

  • Exclusive access to policy experts and training.
  • The opportunity to learn about leadership styles and access international networks to make a difference through policy-making.
  • The chance to discuss your policy ideas with UK Parliamentarians and Government and network with some of the world’s most senior leaders.
  • Joining an exclusive network of exceptional policy change makers from around the world and discuss today’s biggest global challenges.

New for 2021
