Model and costs

The cost for the Stepping Up programme is set on a fixed basis for the four-day and five-day programme respectively.

The cost is set at price per cohort (not per participant). A maximum number of 40participants may form a single cohort on the programme.

As part of the commissioned model the NHS Leadership Academy will provide:

  • Selection and provision of two programme facilitators for all module dates (from the NHS Leadership Academy faculty framework)
  • Method/ process of applications
  • Handling/ administrative support
  • Ongoing digital support and help desk
  • Quality Assurance (QA) of the design and delivery of the tailored programme, including QA of facilitators, workshop delivery and design of any materials and resources
  • Personalisation of marketing materials including a participant and line-manager eBook
  • All programme martials including NHS programme journals and certificates of completion for each participant
