As well as the national Leadership Academy, we can also work with you via one of our ten regional partners who connect our services on a localised level. And thanks to their expertise, our network is better equipped to shape and influence leaders at every level across the country. Click on your region to visit your local leadership academy’s website.

Reaching out – together

By working as a tight network, our national and regional reach is greater. We link up with local and national partners, bringing hundreds of years of leadership knowledge and experience together – on your doorstep. It’s also a good way to identify local talent and really get to grips with your organisation’s leadership training needs.


Our regional partners connect with your local community through their board, steering or reference group membership made up of:


  • chief executives


  • chief accountable officers from CCGs


  • directors from the community


  • acute, mental health and learning disability providers


  • commissioning organisations

Delivering benefits nationwide

With funding from the NHS Leadership Academy and other resources, our regional partners help to develop local leaders and their organisations – with programmes, systems leadership, coaching, organisational development and mentoring, creating sustainable networks, innovation and research based resources.

The Academy also works directly with national partners such as NHS England, the Care Quality Commission, NHS Improvement, Health Education England, Local Government Association and Public Health England to bring our regional offering into line with the national picture, emergent thinking and to design/commission local work programmes.

Thanks to our regional partners, the NHS Leadership Academy is able to:


  •  deliver national professional leadership and nursing and midwifery programmes and recruit more than 30,000 participants


  • provide local support to graduates on the NHS Graduate Management Training Scheme – working with over 100 trainees every year, and doubling this figure by 2018


  • co-create the Academy’s national systems leadership and talent management programme


  • support the development of the healthcare leadership model.
