Challenge, Change and Champion

Programme Details

Challenge, Change and Champion

Focussing on innovation and transformation, this intensive learning week provides a unique opportunity for you to take time out to challenge, change and champion the way you think and work with others to improve your health and care system. You will have time to work with a service/case scenario brought from your local context, by immersing yourself in a range of topics, issues and practical tasks and apply the insights and learning with other like-minded people and the course delivery team. 

Through our varied and highly interactive programme, this five-day learning week will include a mix of presentations, case-studies, discussion panels, virtual on-site visits, small discussion and working group sessions and coaching. This concentrates all your learning into one consolidated week, preparing you to re-enter the workplace invigorated and equipped with new ideas and a fresh perspective. 

Experience facilitated discussion sessions and coaching from recognised experts

The week will be delivered online through facilitated live sessions, as well as individual and group activities. If you are joining as a team, you will get a choice to work together or to work separately with others to get a fresh perspective. There will be panels, leaders, tutors, lecturers, coaches, and facilitators available to work alongside you.

At the start and end of each day, there will be a chance to check in and receive support on your own case scenario. Best of all, you will get your own space and time to accelerate your thinking towards the solutions and how best to take them forward in the near and distant future.

Apply shared expertise and your own learning to your own situation

As a future transformational leader, you will also have an opportunity to explore the leadership challenges further engaging directly with senior international leaders and the Bevan Commissioners. Exposure to different care settings and approaches will help challenge assumptions and traditional thinking in order to create a sustained impact.

 

This rich learning environment will provide a test bed to nurture and develop new ideas and solutions by actively working through the case scenario you bring along as well as the wider barriers you may face and facilitators you can utilise.

 

Whether you are new to health and care, learning or working to support excellent care for people living in your communities, or involved in wider industries to support the development and adoption of new, innovative solutions or ways of working, this week is your chance to take a step back, create head room for thinking and reflecting on your situation and others and get ready for the next year, or the next few years.
