North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust have invested in future healthcare leaders with bespoke training package.
This new leadership offering forms part of its three-year strategy.
The Trust is offering three levels of staff leadership support, beginning with a short virtual training course consolidated with face-to-face reflective learning.
The development opportunity aims to equip future healthcare leaders with the knowledge, skills and experience to futureproof the workforce.
The launch comes after the Trust announced its commitment to Quality Improvement (QI) funded training and support in early March.
All staff are leaders, regardless of their role, job level, or whether they have a formal position to manage or lead teams.Dr Susy Cook, chief people officer
“The changing nature of healthcare is one we know too well but at the core of everything is excellent, resilient leadership.
“That is why we are providing our staff with multiple development packages so they can seize opportunities and challenge themselves.
By empowering leadership at all levels, we will create a safe, self-assured, high-performing, and progressive organisation, capable of making a positive difference to our population.Dr Susy Cook, chief people officer
The new offer forms part of the Trust’s Faculty of Learning, Leadership and Development who embed a continuous improvement culture.
The Faculty’s portfolio also includes the highly commended 100 leaders’ programme, which has successfully run two cohorts.
The programme gives staff the opportunity to implement quality improvement projects that enhance the services offered to staff and patients.
To date, the cohorts have implemented an internal mentorship scheme, paperless services and planted over 500 trees on hospital sites.
The leadership training sits alongside our 100 leaders programme, showcasing how we are committed to continually improving the care we offer our patients.
I look forward to seeing how our staff develop and thrive under this new offering as we work to meet the ever changing healthcare needs of our local population.Dr Susy Cook, chief people officer
