The Next Generation Leaders Programme has been commissioned and designed by the NIHR Oxford BRC to enable researchers and health professionals to develop key skills in leadership and management capability.
This programme is an opportunity designed for early to mid-career individuals to develop skills in leadership, conflict management and influence as they take on more responsibility. This programme would not be suitable for senior leaders such as principal investigators, clinical consultants or research professors. We would also expect applicants to have completed a doctorate or professional training.
Applicants should be employed by Oxford University or Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Applications will be reviewed and allocated by a review panel, based on their reasons for applying for the course and their availability for sessions. We will aim to ensure there is a diverse mix of participants on the programme.
When will it take place?
Sessions will run monthly from January 2021 – June 2021(for full dates see the application form).
Sessions will include a mix of question and answer sessions with senior leaders/ practitioners and interactive skills workshops led by facilitators. You will also work on group quality improvement projects which will be presented to members of the OUH NHS Trust after the end of the programme. You will need to commit to at least 5 sessions and have line manager support.

As part of last year’s course, the participants worked together in teams on quality improvement projects which required a high level of commitment. You can view their posters by tapping on the preview image link below.
