On starting work, newly registered health care practitioners can often feel overwhelmed with the reality of clinical practice. There is much evidence nationally and internationally, that newly qualified health care professionals do not always feel supported in their transition period from student o registered practitioner.

This academically accredited programme aims to address these issues through providing a structured framework of support and education.

The educational components of the programme will support the development of a flexible competent and confident practitioner as well as providing the opportunity for academic accreditation and continued professionally development. The programme will be co-ordinated centrally through the Education Academy. The programme has 2 distinct components which are the core workshops and our new and unique Foundation in Leadership and management (FLM) apprenticeship.


Leadership Development

During this 18 month (12 study days) multiprofessional Preceptorship Programme “We want to help you understand how your leadership behaviours affect the culture and climate you, your colleagues, and teams work in. Whether you work directly with patients and service users or not, you will realise what you do and how you   behave will affect the experiences of patients and service users of your organisation, the quality of care provided, and the reputation of the organisation itself” (Healthcare Leadership Model 2013). We believe that having the Foundations in Leadership element as part of this outstanding Preceptorship programme will give all learners the confidence and competence to lead and influence change at all levels in this ambitious organisation and beyond.

The programme is delivered using a blended learning approach and some programme components are achieved through eLearning while others through attending virtual or face to face workshops.
