The NHS Leadership Academy is seeking to expand its team of leadership experts by tendering for 35 practitioners to support the delivery of its range of leadership development programmes.

Working with specialists in organisational and leadership development, the Academy is able to draw from a wide range of skills, expertise and experience in the health and public sector and beyond, to respond and adapt to the changing needs of the NHS.

Known as the Academy’s faculty, these specialists are involved in the design and delivery of a number of its high-profile national programmes including NHS Top Leaders, the NHS Graduate Management Trainee Scheme, nursing and midwifery leadership development programmes and the recently launched professional development programmes. The faculty includes individual practitioners as well as named individuals from large consultancy firms and academic organisations.

Dr Dave Ashton, head of practice at the NHS Leadership Academy, said: “To achieve the Leadership Academy’s principal aim of developing outstanding leadership in health and to realise the benefits this will give for patient experience and outcomes, it’s vital we have the right resources in place. Our faculty are a team of highly expert practitioners in the leadership and organisational development field who support us in achieving this aim.

“The variety of work for members of the faculty is huge, ranging from relatively small group interventions with senior NHS leaders, through to large workshops of over 100 people. A number of the Academy’s faculty work closely together for the input in to the design of some of our key programmes and the delivery of many.”

Recruitment for the faculty is through OJEU tender. Successful bidders will be contracted from January 2014 for an initial three years with the opportunity to extend for a further year.
