Applications are open to any EU resident who has had at least five years’ work experience, in the cultural sector or beyond. The flexibly designed fellowship will normally last for one year, during which Clore Fellows will attend two intensive residential leadership courses, receive individual tuition and mentoring, extend their management experience through a high profile secondment and have an opportunity to engage in reflection and research. Fellows will have the option of remaining with their present employers, and following the course in stages, or of receiving a full-time bursary of GBP 20,000. Every year they offer General Fellowships and a number of Fellowships focused on particular specialisms or geographical areas, that change every year. The Short Courses have been designed for people in the middle ranks of cultural organisations or those at or near the top of smaller ones, and who have a minimum of five years’ work experience. The teaching is a potent mixture of the practical and the academic, providing a large measure of intensive personal development, an examination of the nature of good leadership and an introduction to key areas of expert knowledge essential to effective cultural leadership.
