South East Leadership Academy

Graduate Management Training Scheme (GMTS)

As an organisation / system a trainee can provide new thinking and solutions to projects including ways of working, not only through their experience on the scheme, but through questioning and trying to find more efficient ways to improve the service for patients, whilst providing a talent pipeline of future leaders in the NHS.

As many of you are aware, this coming September will see our largest cohort of GMTS trainees starting in the SE region ever. It is also the first time we have been able to successfully allocate a trainee to all requests from our systems, which is a huge achievement. In the lead up to September, we are running a number of programme and placement manager training events. We are also launching the first of hopefully many GMTS Programme and Placement manager welcome events. Please see below for further details on both of these offers.

We will also be hosting a new trainee welcome event in August to prepare the trainees for their journey.

We are also hoping to establish a South East GMTS Alumni network, and we are asking all Alumni of the scheme in the SE to make contact. Please see below for further details. If you are interested in hosting a GMTS trainee in future cohorts, or you are, or know of someone that may be interested in becoming a trainee, please do contact us on [email protected].
