LEADERSHIP & ORGANISATIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Student Leadership Programme
The Council of Deans of Health represents the UK’s university faculties engaged in education and research for nurses, midwives and allied health professionals. At any one time their members will be educating around 100,000 future and registered health professionals.
Their Student Leadership Programme aims to promote and develop leadership skills among the future nursing, midwifery and AHP workforce by working with first and second year pre-registration students. Using information from a student survey and the input of students on the project advisory group the programme has been co-designed with students to ensure it focuses on areas not covered in current pre-registration curricula. So far, 200 students from across the UK have already completed the programme. You can read about their experiences in their blogs and case studies.
The #150Leaders are affectionate name for those students who are accepted on to the programme. Initially, the programme was designed as a two-year programme for 150 students, hence 150Leaders, but now 200 students have completed the Student Leadership Programme, and a further 50 are in their current cohort.

The App is free, open access, web-based and also accessible from your desktop or mobile devices.
