Nye Bevan programme – applications close 23rd September


Leadership for today. Leadership for tomorrow. The Nye Bevan programme has been specifically designed to develop senior leaders. It’s been shown to accelerate individuals into executive roles, helping them perform better at board level, and help boards better meet operational challenges today and enable change for tomorrow. It also supports senior leaders to move beyond leadership within their area of professional expertise, into executive roles that span organisational boundaries.

Designed with national and international experts in health and organisational performance, the programme offers support and learning to build personal resilience, confidence and capabilities over 12 months. The Nye Bevan programme has developed over 1,000 senior leaders, with nearly 40% of recent graduates reporting being in a more senior role, which 90% directly attribute to the programme.

As part of the ambitions of the NHS Long Term Plan and Interim People Plan, the NHS Leadership Academy will be providing additional development opportunities for:

  • Registered healthcare professionals in the NHS and wider health and care sector who are clinicians at one below board/governing body level – or equivalent – including those with backgrounds other than in nursing and medicine, such as those working in and across the diverse professions falling within the Allied Health Professionals (AHP) umbrella, clinical pharmacists and health care scientists
  • Those working in the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and the national health and care arm’s length bodies

For this intake, we will be including additional learning elements above and beyond the Nye Bevan programme to help support the transition from professional leadership to corporate executive leadership and specifically address the challenges in these roles.

Applications close on 23 September 2019
