Apply for the Aspiring Chief Executive Programme

The role of the chief executive in health care has never been more important. How we appoint to such posts – and help our chief executives to be successful ‘in role’ – is one of our most important leadership issues. As the health systems evolves and new models of care emerge, chief executives who can successfully lead provider organisations and collaborate in the transformation of care are key.

Our highly successful Aspiring Chief Executive programme will be open for applications in September for our fourth cohort.  A collaboration between the NHS Leadership Academy (as part of NHS England and NHS Improvement) and NHS Providers the programme forms part of a fully resourced, strategic response to the challenge of how we identify, develop and deploy our most senior leaders. Together, we have designed and delivered an exceptional development and challenging programme to prepare those with the potential to become chief executives in the next 12-24 months. Those participants who demonstrate their readiness to become chief executives by the end of the programme will gain the NHS Leadership Academy Chief Executive Award.
