DfT Commercial Development Programme, Department for Transport
DfT's Commercial Development Programme is a fantastic example of collaboration across multiple professions and disciplines, to manage an identified gap in the commercial leadership arena. The three-year accelerated development programme provides commercial associates with the opportunity to undertake three diverse and stretching commercial placements. The programme is built on industry best practice and provides a comprehensive learning and development offer, including working towards recognised professional qualifications. The programme has successfully enabled the department to build a sustainable pipeline of commercial leaders, and very clearly advances the pillars of 'A Brilliant Civil Service' alongside commercial priorities for the transport sector.
