2016 Refreshed Mary Seacole Programme

Please note there are important changes to the Mary Seacole programme. The impact and feedback from our alumni has been exceptional and it has indicated a few areas where the programme can be made even better.

Key changes to the programme – beginning May 2016 - are as follows:

1. Study time will now take place over six months including attendance of three face-to-face workshops delivered regionally.

2. The core elements of the programme have been retained. The programme will have 12 units in total: seven on leadership, one on service improvement, and four new units on management fundamentals including recruitment and selection, appraisals, finance and HR.

3. At the end of the programme and following submission of a single 2,000 word assignment, successful participants will earn an NHS Leadership Academy Award in Healthcare Leadership.

4. The cost of the programme is £995.

Please be reassured that whether you have completed or are still studying the original Mary Seacole programme, you will still hold and work towards the accreditation of a Postgraduate Certificate in Healthcare Leadership through the Open University and an NHS Leadership Academy Award in Healthcare Leadership.
