Supporting your leadership journey...

Coaching for Improvement Cohort 3 - Closing Date Extended to 18th February 2022

09 January 2022


Are you working in a Quality Improvement (QI) role or projects within North East & Yorkshire 

This programme has been designed for colleagues working in roles and projects which involve Quality Improvement (QI), with a focus upon developing participant’s leadership effectiveness for QI through the application of a coaching approach.Preference for places will be given to those staff working to support the establishment of ICS in the region, and as such are open to all organisations across the health and care system. This will enable the development and application of core skills around supporting engagement of staff, increasing the impact and long term success of change initiatives.

Participants will be required to identify and undertake a project which will enable application of learning within the workplace (it is not expected that this project must complete within the life of the programme). The impact of your personal learning and the service improvement project will be evaluated 3 months post programme completion which will include submission of a brief written summary; this will not be academically assessed, but will be used within the NEYLA website and newsletter to highlight the excellent work from across the region.

Target audience

This programme is aimed at health and care staff from all professional backgrounds within the North East & Yorkshire region, working within a healthcare setting. This includes staff involved in supporting change initiatives (such as service redesign or organisational change) as a key part of their role, but not working specifically in a QI or transformation role.

There is no expectation that participants will be qualified coaches, but they should have experience of managing change in the workplace. Please be aware that attendance at this programme will not provide coaching accreditation.
