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 the NHS’s 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.

Applications for the programme are now closed. We are currently running the third cohort of the highly successful Aspiring Chief Executive programme. This is a collaboration between the NHS Leadership Academy, NHS Improvement and NHS Providers. It forms part of a fully resourced, strategic response to the challenge of how we identify, develop and deploy our most senior leaders. Together, these three organisations have designed and delivered a programme to prepare those with the potential to become chief executives in the next 12-24 months. As well as providing exceptional development, this challenging programme will also assess readiness to take up these demanding roles. Those participants who demonstrate their readiness by the end of the programme will gain the NHS Leadership Academy Chief Executive Award.

The design is underpinned by wide support across the health system and input from serving chief executives, chairs and system partners.
