The Council of Deans of Health and the Florence Nightingale Foundation have launched a call for applications to their leadership scholarship scheme for future academic leaders. The programme, now in its third year, brings together both the health and higher education aspects of a Dean’s role in a tailored programme to support the development of staff looking to lead university faculties with nursing, midwifery or AHP programmes.
Professor Dame Jessica Corner, Chair of the Council of Deans of Health, said:
“I am delighted that we are continuing this programme. We have already seen the benefit of this scheme for the first two cohorts of scholars and I’m pleased that we will have the opportunity to continue to develop the next generation of senior leaders”.
