Programme Structure

The Student Leadership Programme 2020

The programme officially starts with a two-day event full of workshops, lectures and seminars in March 2020, followed by a coaching scheme and an additional networking event in July 2020 in London. 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.

Throughout the programme, each student is expected to accomplish the following:

  • Attend the two-day welcome event on 10/11 March 2020 in Reading
  • Attend the networking event in July 2020 in London
  • Attend meetings with their allocated coach through a combination of face to face and/or on-line interaction e.g. through Skype
  • Make a meaningful contribution to the online community established on the Programme’s website and through social media
  • Lead on a project that has a positive impact on your university, or your university peers. e.g. disseminating learning from the programme to fellow students
  • Publish blogs, articles or media clips to promote the learning from the programme to future student cohorts and others
  • Submit a final report (500-1000 words at length) to the Council of Deans of Health reflecting on the experience of the programme

So far, 150 students from across the UK have already completed the programme, and 50 are currently on the 2019 programme. You can read about their experiences in their blogs and case studies.
