Key information

Programme dates and locations

Intake 6 will consist of ten cohorts of up to 42 participants each. This will include 4 cohorts in Leeds and 6 in London; each with two, 3 day modules. The programme runs over five months and provides a combination of face to face, self-directed and workplace based learning.

Applications for intake 6 will open on Monday 18 May 2020 and will close automatically once full, or six weeks prior to the first day of module 1 for the chosen cohort – whichever happens first.

Before applying for the programme, you must ensure you read fully our application guidance document – you can find this at the bottom of the page.

It is also a good idea to start having conversations with your line manager around your personal and professional development. Both yourself and your line manager will need to sign a copy of our Terms and Conditions for the programme before your application is submitted.

What’s the cost of the programme?

The Stepping Up programme is fully funded by the Academy. However, this does not mean it is free. Participants must commit themselves to the full journey of the programme and will be asked to sign a document expressing the intention to do so, prior to taking a place. If participants withdraw from the programme before fully completing it, and without extenuating circumstances agreed with the NHS Leadership Academy, your organisation will be liable to bear the full cost of the programme which is £1,500.

Supporting Documents

We recommend that you discuss potential Stepping Up programme dates with your line manager ahead of applying and where possible, get a copy of the Terms and Conditions signed; this will help speed up your application.
