Graduate Leadership Development Programm

Leadership Skills for Generation Y

About

Raytheon Company is a technology and innovation leader specialising in defence, homeland security and other government markets throughout the world.

Raytheon recruit ambitious graduates who they believe will develop into the company’s leaders of the future. They wanted to introduce an integrated development programme that would run in conjunction with technical training delivered within individual business areas.

Objective

Raytheon chose Impact UK to work in partnership with them to design and deliver a multi-modular programme that would develop the personal and business skills that the graduates will need to become effective leaders in the future.

Our programme has been specifically designed to develop leadership behaviours for Generation Y.

Solution

Raytheon and Impact have created a structured two-year leadership development programme that incorporates classroom based and experiential learning alongside the graduate’s day-to-day work. Impact facilitators work with the graduates throughout the entire journey.

Result

"Eighteen months into programme and I can truly say that it has been such a great experience. The activities have ranged from learning presentation skills, understanding your impact in a team, to having a lot of fun along the way with experiential team building activities. The external training we are fortunate enough to receive, as well as on-the-job training has helped me to build on my career at an early stage." - Kerri, Class of 2012
