Leadership Foundations

The NHS Leadership Academy in collaboration with HEE e-Learning for Healthcare has designed the Edward Jenner Programme as a new multi-professional e-learning resource. The aim of this resource is to support clinicians in developing the fundamentals of leadership resulting in an NHS Leadership Academy Award in Leadership Foundations.

The NHS Leadership Academy is championing this excellent opportunity to provide a resource that will support clinicians who are newly qualified or new to a role (for example a nurse to health visitor) and those clinicians returning to practice after a career break. The resource is also applicable to those who are new to leadership and/or a leadership role. 

The content has been written and designed by clinicians for clinicians and has been produced by multi-professional authors from a wide range of clinical backgrounds (including doctors, physiotherapists, pharmacists, nurses). We have liaised extensively with key partners to produce this flexible resource that will support clinicians in their role to deliver high quality, compassionate and safe patient care. Quality assurance for the content has been provided by double editing, peer review, stakeholder review and Critical Eye events (including internal and external moderation).
