Informal learning


  • To witness ‘good people at work’ and observe role models.
  • For trainees to be able to identify themselves as Leaders.
  • For trainees to gain the understanding to enable them to engage with the leadership process and recognise leadership in the everyday work.
  • To tap into the rich educational resource that is work-based learning.
  • To ensure that leadership development is available to all, and not only available within "high end" programmes

To enable this, we are planning leadership initiatives in the workplace to include:

  • Recruitment of Leadership Mentors and Leads within each Trust
  • Recruitment of Leadership Fellows working with senior trust managers within an organisation.
  • Secondment posts supported by HEE. NHSLA to support PG Cert in Healthcare Management and Leadership.
  • Whilst supporting both Fellows and Mentors, we will expand Leadership coaches and mentors from within the NHSLA to help underpin leadership expansion into the workplace learning.
