Leadership for Change
Currently closed – Building on the success of the first three cohorts, Leadership for Change Cohort 4 has been redesigned specifically to support teams that are leading the implementation of STPs.
Leadership for Change will work with groups of 4-6 leaders who are playing a leading role in the implementation of some aspect of a specific STP. Participants could come from any sector including Children’s Services, Adult Social Care, Public Health, CCGs, Hospitals, health and social care providers and the Voluntary Sector.
Future Directors Programme
Currently closed, but taking expressions of interest – The Future Directors Programme, is part of the ‘Leadership for Change’ suite of programmes, is an ongoing collaboration between the Staff College and Public Health England. The programme has evolved from other senior leadership programmes offered to aspiring directors across the public sector and provides an opportunity for senior officers to jointly prepare for the next phase of their careers and learn from each other.
LeaP – Leadership Programme for Trainee Doctors
Applications closed– The programme ensures trainees are exposed to Leadership and Management development over a one-year period early in their Specialist Training, rather than simply as a “quick fix” five-day course in their final year.
To find out more about the programme email [email protected] or call 01223 884409
Leadership and management competencies are crucial components of all nine Specialist Psychiatry Training curricula (Appendix 1).
The course comprises five classroom-based training days over six months, and is delivered in Cambridge. Trainees are expected to use five days of study leave from their annual allowance.
Each trainee is expected to undertake a service improvement project based on an aspect of Leadership or Management.
Quality, Service Improvement and Redesign (QSIR)
Currently open – This suite of programmes provides clinical and non-clinical staff with the know-how to design and implement more efficient, patient-centred services. Based on tried and tested tools and approaches, it covers the breadth of service improvement skills.
QSIR College is designed to develop candidates to become associate members of the QSIR Teaching Faculty and go on to skill up other staff within their local systems. Between 6 to 10 candidates will be drawn from the various organisations involved in the sustainability and transformation plan across up to 10 health systems.
Individuals nominated by their systems should be committed to working together across organisational boundaries to skill other staff up to undertake the quality and service improvements that will underpin delivery of the Five Year Forward View and have significant service and quality improvement skills and experience and be committed to working as a member of the local team rolling out the QSIR programme across their system.
Transformational Change Through System Leadership (TCSL)
Currently closed – This fully funded programme provides access to expert, professional support delivered through a series of workshops for those leading transformational changes. It is targeted at teams of senior leaders who are working on a transformational change as part of an sustainability and transformation partnership (STP) or integrated care system (ICS) work programme. During the workshops, the teams are supported to put theory into practice as they work on their own system-wide, transformational change and interact with peers from across the country who are leading changes in their own systems.
Based upon the proven concepts, tools and techniques used when working within complex healthcare environments, TCSL covers a broad range of topics. The workshops integrate a wide range of perspectives and theories — from complexity and system theories to the psychology of change — and participants have time to use various tools to shape their programme and build their change leadership capability.
