Student Leadership Programme

The Student Leadership Programme (SLP) is an exciting opportunity for selected students with particular leadership potential to further develop their skills through a 3-4-month long learning programme providing intensive training in the essential knowledge and skills for future healthcare leaders.

The Programme includes:

  • 2.5 away days with tailored workshops, lectures and seminars led by individuals in a leadership position and/or with knowledge about leadership skills development
  • a mentoring scheme with one-to-one access to individuals who are visionary leaders, thinkers, creators and front runners in their own respective disciplines (both within and outside of the health and care sector)
  • an online community of practice where students and mentors can interact and debate relevant topics and issues as sharing and learning from each other is strongly encouraged. In addition, this is where students can access e-learning material to assist them with their learning.

To attend to diverse learning needs and preferences, the course blends individual learning and group projects, as well as opportunities to listen to leaders sharing their personal and professional journeys and illustrating different styles of leadership.
