Regional Academies are offered wherever regional organisations have a desire to support their local leaders to do real transformation through learning how to lead change collaboratively. These academies will undertake real-time, placed- based regional change work and grow a network of committed local leaders.

The first places for 2019 regional academies will be advised by the end of August 2018.
