Leadership & Management Development

Leadership Development Programme

The Leadership Development Programme (LDP) cohorts are full this year and cohorts for 2024 will be advertised in the staff bulletin in early November 2023 and application forms will be available via the advert in the Trust bulletin/Training News. CLP cohorts are not available yet. These will also be advertised in the Trust bulletin/Training News when these have been organised.

Our commitment to leadership development is at all levels.  We recognise the importance of developing everybody to maximise their potential, to lead with compassion and to support those around them to be at their best.

We have worked hard to develop a leadership offer available at first line / aspiring managers right the way through to our Board which captures the internal and external initiatives available -  external requests can come at a cost – and so please do bear in mind, access to any external development requests are subject to costs and availability.

See below, an overview of our leadership offer (some of the elements could be subject to change) - this outlines the variety of development options available internally and externally.  Take a look at the PDFs below for further information and also an overview of the current programmes which are live.

Our broader Learning and Development offer also supports individuals to maximise their potential, again, take a look at the below information, this is separated into different sections so that you can easily identify potential development opportunities which can be accessed in a less formal way than our Leadership Programmes.

For more information, do not hesitate to contact the Talent, Learning and Culture team in OD on:  bwfh.orgdevelopment@nhs.net
