At Staff College, we believe passionately in the development of healthcare leaders at all stages within their careers. For us, not only is our work about supporting individuals to find the moral courage to do the right thing on a difficult day, but it’s also about seeing the direct impact that all leaders in healthcare can have on the quality of care for patients.

On this page, you’ll find stories of those who’ve been through our programmes, sharing the profound impact that attending has had on them, and on their services.

We’re really pleased to have been included in the Healthy London Partnership’s recent publication: Clinical Leadership – Investing in the Primary Care Workforce as a recommended leadership development provider for leaders in primary care.

You can find out more about the programme for Emerging Leaders in Primary Care in this blog.

Staff College is more than a programme, it is a lever for cultural change in leadership with profound power to help us achieve the quality of care our patients need and the quality of working life our staff deserve. Being part of the program and taking my board team through the program is an integral part of our leadership journey that has, is and will, deliver substantial returns for the investment. Join us – it’s worth it!

There’s something about the personalities of team members, the ethos and the overt openness and honesty that runs through Staff College and the focus on awareness raising that really makes it different to anyone else. Their focus on process and behaviours, and how behaviours can have a positive or negative impact on how we work together forms the basis of development.

When we’re stuck in the discussion it’s hard to see the bird’s eye view. I loved the provocation and the way Staff College helped pull us back to think about what was really at the heart of what we’re trying to achieve.

People began to feel more confident to be honest about how they felt and what they thought. We paid more attention to what was going on in the room for people. Meetings became more focussed and open with greater trust between members.
