About the ICET Project

The European Social Fund and University of Suffolk are financing ICET, a £1m project to support business professionals to access high quality, immersive digital and leadership training. A key element of the ICET project is to promote the progression of women in business and digital arenas. Training courses have been subsidised by 50% by the European Social Fund. The University has partnered with some high calibre national training partners who also have contributed financial discounts and/or tangible professional added value, all of which will be shared with course attendees.

Our courses for 2022 are now complete, but we will be announcing new course dates for 2023 very soon. To express your interest in hearing about our 2023 International Womens Day event or to hear about the courses we'll be offering next year please complete our short online form.

Leadership for Women - a brand new course

The Institute of Directors and University of Suffolk have developed a brand new Leadership for Women course as part of this project and we celebrated its launch with an International Women's Day event in partnership with Suffolk Chamber of Commerce and Epicentre in March 2022.
