The Saltire Fellowship Programme

We have developed a six month, world class leadership programme to grow and connect the talent driving the Scottish economy. The focus of the programme is on entrepreneurial leadership, experiential learning and a global mindset rooted in Scotland.


The Saltire Fellowship Programme provides Scotland with a pipeline of entrepreneurially minded leaders with the confidence and skills to take Scottish organisations to the next level. 

The next Saltire Fellowship will begin in September 2017 and we are now recruiting for the 2017/18 cohort. To find out more register your interest.

Who's it for?

Do you feel you could accomplish more in your career?

Do you want to learn from international business leaders sharing their real-world successes and failures?

Then this is the programme for you.

The Fellowship is aimed at those who have created, are working in or want to be involved within growing organisations in Scotland.

There is no typical candidate for the programme. It’s for ambitious individuals with meaningful work experience who demonstrate high potential for the future.

Recent participants have come from small businesses, large businesses, family-owned enterprises, the third sector and Government.
