The Student Leadership Programme offers innovative ways for developing leadership in future healthcare professionals. Targeted at 150 students of nursing, midwifery and allied health professional courses across the UK, the programme offers exposure to leadership training, networking and mentoring.
60 students participated in the programme in 2017 and a further 90 students have been recruited for 2018. Brought together they form our #150Leaders. The programme starts with a welcome event followed by a personalised mentorship scheme, online networking through social media and an online community of practice. The programme concludes with a final event in London.
