Programme dates and locations

Intake 5 will consist of ten cohorts (5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 5.7, 5.8, 5.9, 5.10) of up to 40 participants each. This will include three cohorts in Leeds and three in London; each with two modules: a three day and two day face to face workshop for those at band 7, and two modules of two days each for those at bands 5-6. The programme runs over five months and provides a combination of face to face, self-directed and workplace based learning.

Applications for intake 5 open on Tuesday 9 July 2019 and will close automatically once full, or six weeks prior to the first day of module 1 for the chosen cohort – whichever happens first.

What’s the cost of the programme?

The Stepping Up programme is fully funded by the Academy. However, this does not mean it is free. Participants must commit themselves to the full journey of the programme and will be asked to sign a document expressing the intention to do so, prior to taking a place. If participants withdraw from the programme before fully completing it, and without extenuating circumstances agreed with the NHS Leadership Academy, your organisation will be liable to bear the full cost of the programme. The cost for band 5 and 6 is £970 and the cost for band 7 is £1,310.
