The Guardian (Society p9) profiles the attempt of a black housing officer of Leeds City Council to break through the 'glass ceiling' that restricts entry into senior posts.

Angela Walwyn is one of 13 black middle managers in Leeds taking part in the country's first university course aimed at giving ethnic minority employees a better chance of reaching the highest council office.

The council has worked with Leeds Metropolitan University to develop the Advanced Professional Diploma in Local Government Management.

As part of the day release course, students will have a placement in another department and assistant directors will be assigned to act as personal mentors throughout.
