NHS Leadership Academy Apprenticeship

Health and social care need high quality leaders at every level and in every role to ensure that high quality compassionate care is delivered to the people they serve. The NHS Leadership Academy has developed leadership programmes aimed at first time, middle and senior leaders which have been purposefully designed to be self directed, flexible, grounded in reality and applied in the workplace so align perfectly to apprenticeships. The NHS Leadership Academy are working with education providers to provide access to their leadership development programmes as part of apprenticeships, in line with the People Plan. The aim is to help widen access to leadership development whilst further enabling the health and social care sector to fully utilise the levy and apprenticeships for recruitment and development.  This document highlights the different apprenticeships available and planned to launch with NHS Leadership Academy programmes included with them and who to contact for further information.
