The School for Change Agents!

Sharpen your pencils, pack your rucksack and find your tie, because School is back! Yes, you heard that right …The School for Change Agents is returning on 7th November!

The School is aimed at anyone who works in health and care, at whatever level and whether they are in a clinical or non-clinical role – although it is open to everyone and all are welcome. The School offers the opportunity to take their desire to see change happen and make it a reality.

The #S4CA has 5 modules:

  1. Change starts with me 
  2. Resourcefulness 
  3. Using power to make a difference 
  4. Using stories to create change
  5. Making sense of complexity

We are so thrilled to see all of the love for the #S4CA! It is amazing to see that people are already spreading the word …
