Dare London Opportunities

UK101 Leadership Programme

What is it?

UK101 is a free, online leadership development programme that explores the concept of UK101 Leadership. As a participant, you will learn alongside a diverse group of peers to develop your own UK101 leadership skills through interactive exercises, engaging articles, and discussion forums. You will also hear stories of UK101 leadership from a wide range of senior and emerging leaders, such as a migrant rights activist, a social entrepreneur, a scientist, an Extinction Rebellion organizer, a former NHS doctor, a mother and daughter duo, and the head of a university business school. The programme takes between 4-6 hours which you can complete at your own pace during the 6-week cohort.

Who can take part?

UK101 is open to all young people in the UK, ages 18-25.

The only thing these young people will have in common is their generation; some will be in employment, some not; some studying, some caring; some finding their way, others already making their way. Some in cities, others in rural communities. Many will be passionate activists, others will be discovering their own causes or quietly volunteering.


The programme is completely free of cost, and runs every two months. The programme takes between 3-6 hours and you can complete it at your own pace. The next upcoming cohort is 17 August–28 September.

Register now for the next cohort.


The programme is hosted online. If you are enrolled, you can log in here.
