“It doesn’t matter what your title, role or banding is. Be passionate, you are needed, your voice and story are important and if you see something that could be changed to support your patient, go for it. We would all be a lot more successful if we just gave it a go.

The school is going to help you achieve the incredible.”

What is the School for Change Agents?

The School for Change Agents builds change agency which is the power, individually and collectively, to make a difference. It is about pushing the boundaries of what is possible, mobilising others and making change happen more quickly. We are more than a school. We are a movement of 15,000 people in the health sector building a community to create the boldest and most innovative new ideas in health and care. It is the most widely used skill-building programme for change in the NHS. The Community is entirely online, there are five interactive live webinars with the opportunity to catch up with the recordings afterwards.

The School will provide you with the skills, confidence and community to make a difference in an ever-changing and evolving environment, and the skills to implement the NHS Long Term Plan through sharing the latest in change and transformation thinking. You will leave the School with the power to make change in your organisation.

There will also be six modules on our e-learning platform, hosted by Futurelearn, in partnership with the NHS Leadership Academy. This will provide you with the opportunity to further your learning beyond the live webinars, offering opportunities for reflection on how to implement your learning. The entire course is free to join and take part in, to receive accreditation and CPD for these modules, there is a nominal fee of £32. This may be useful for a range of professions, such as revalidation for medical and nursing colleagues. We will make a number of free upgrades available to NHS staff and patients (‘experts by experience’). Details of this will follow in due course.

The dates of the live sessions (which will be presented by Helen Bevan and Kathryn Perera) are below:

  •            16 May
  •            23 May
  •            6 June
  •            13 June
  •            20 June

These will take place at 3pm UK time and recordings of the live sessions will be made available afterwards.

Who is the School for?

If you are someone who cares about your work but are finding yourself dancing in stifling hierarchies that slow us down in getting the changes you know are needed, find yourself criticised for being disruptive or negative or see what needs to change but don’t quite know how to change it, then the School for Change Agents is for you.
