Curriculum & Timetable

The New Ground Academy runs a two-year training course. Students begin the course in September and graduate in the July of their second year.

It's costly but Academy students understand that growing in leadership usually is.

Two full days of training take place each month (on Friday and Saturday) for 10 months of the year for two years. Since students have holiday in the months of August and December, this equates to 20 days a year; 40 days in total across the two years. Many students will therefore invest three days of their annual leave in 2021, ten days of annual leave in 2022 and seven days of annual leave in 2023. It's costly but Academy students understand that growing in leadership usually is.

In the light of COVID-19, we have taken the view that we need to postpone the September 2020 intake of the New Ground Academy to September 2021 instead. This will mean we are unable to accept students this coming September, which we know may be frustrating for some of you, but with the Olympics and the European Cup and so many other dates postponed by a year I hope that you will understand that this is beyond our control.

Great church leaders and church shapers become great because they invest in their potential and put themselves in a place where God can speak to them and teach them. We hope that you are able do so.
