Following it's success in March 2015 the NIHR CLAHRC Oxford is re-launching it's highly praised training course for helping healthcare leaders, and future leaders, to develop high impact leadership skills.

Really valuable, helpful training that will impact greatly on my work under CLAHRC and in the future - thank you
- March Participant

The skills that make a good healthcare professional are not necessarily the same as those that make a good leader.

Yet many of those moving up through the healthcare career path can find themselves in demanding leadership positions, managing multidisciplinary healthcare teams, with little leadership training, and often an expectation that these skills will 'learn on the job'.

CLAHRC Oxford recognised this gap in support and knowledge, and in March 2015 launched a two day leadership skills training course in partnership with the Saïd Business School, tailored specifically for those in healthcare leadership positions.

Participants hailed the course as a great success, giving it an average rating of 9.4 out of 10 across a wide range of course components, such as quality, relevance and instructor knowledge.

Following from both the success and demand for this course, NIHR CLAHRC Oxford is pleased to announce it will be running the course for a second time, starting in September this year.

The course is available, for free, to anyone who holds, or aims to hold, a leadership position in a healthcare setting and is part of the NIHR CLAHRC Oxford and/or it's partner organisations.

The deadline for applications has  now been extended - we will be accepting applications until 12 noon on Monday 24th August
