Bursary scheme for our leadership development programmes

Details of the 2016 bursary scheme will be announced later this year.

The scheme aims to support emerging and established leaders who want to develop their leadership skills and increase their contribution to the delivery of truly patient-centred care by enabling them to have access to both leadership development and a supportive network of colleagues and leaders.

We recognise the current pressures on training and development budgets across the sector, and are passionate in our desire to make our programmes open to all who can benefit from them. We will fund a proportion of the programme fee which is agreed on a case by case basis.
