What’s it about?
The programme provides participants with an intensive development experience to extend leadership confidence and skills in utilising a system change consulting and facilitation approach, when engaging in cross-organisation and system transformation.
Who is it for?
The programme is relevant to senior leaders working in transformational change and leading or supporting strategic, complex system change, including but not exclusive to senior OD/HR or transformation professionals.
"The nature of change has changed. The change we face in society in general, and in the health and care sector in particular, is now more complex than ever before. The shape and delivery mechanisms of our organisations need to continually adapt to deliver in a 21st century context. The consulting skills programme has been designed to support NHS staff who want to work with our most challenging issues to gain the skills and confidence to work more effectively. It aims to enable practitioners to ‘slow down’ and take a deeper look at how they work with change in order that we can build our capacity for change with a pool of local change agents who are ready and able to work with our most challenging issues."
Maxine Craig, Programme Facilitator

We’re pleased to celebrate ten years of our Advancing Quality (AQ) programme, with October 2018 marking a decade of supporting the delivery of high-quality care across the North West.
Launched in 2008, AQ is our flagship reliability of care programme, and works with Trusts across the region to provide evidence based approaches and reduce variation, so that the highest quality of care can be delivered to every patient, every time.
To mark the occasion, we’ve produced an infographic timeline of some of the key achievements for the programme, and how we’ve helped Trusts over the last ten years. We’ll also be sharing some of these on social media via the hashtag #AQ10years.

Stepping Up is a fully funded, two to three month positive action programme from the NHS Leadership Academy. It has been designed for individuals who have an interest in developing their leadership abilities and want to be involved in creating a transformational change in equality and diversity across the healthcare sector.
The programme aims to create greater levels of sustainable inclusion within the NHS by addressing the social, organisational and psychological barriers restricting BAME colleagues from progressing within the NHS. It is split into two cohorts – one for bands 5 and 6 and another for people in band 7 roles and runs across four or five residential dates (depending on cohort). The programme has been designed specifically for these colleagues.
“I feel more confident and able to harness the power of cultural heritage to improve my abilities as a leader.” David Van de Velde, Nurse, Central and North West NHS Foundation Trust
