This funded part-time leadership programme is for 12 months, starting in April 2024.

Different academic providers at renowned national and international institutions have been identified who can contribute to the programme and, while some programme elements are essential for the whole cohort, there is also the opportunity to tailor to the individual needs of participants after an initial needs analysis and discussion.

The overall programme will consist of coaching and participation in masterclasses as well as participating in an academic programme of senior leadership development to help to develop your knowledge, skills and ability to be a Very Senior Leader within the scientific and broader NHS workforce and healthcare system.

Expressions of interest are requested by 1st December 2023, with further information and application details to then follow. Interviews will take place at the end of January/early February 2024.

We ask you to express your interest now by emailing by 1st December 2023. We will then ensure you receive further information about the programme and the application process by mid-December, with applications to be received by 10th January 2024.  The initial stage will include a written application. Shortlisted candidates will then be invited to attend a day of in-person interviews and activities, including assessment of leadership strengths, to explore and determine together if this leadership programme is right for you at this time.  The interview day will take place end of January/early February 2024 – exact date to be confirmed.
