Leadership, Management and Personal Development

Learning to Lead Toolkit:

The Learning to Lead Toolkit is a tiered approach to developing clinical leaders in post graduate medical training. It was developed through collaboration between the Thames Valley and Wessex Leadership Academy and the Professional Development Associate Deans from Health Education England (Thames Valley and Wessex).

The toolkit is designed around both trainee and the educational supervisor, incorporating it into personal development plans.

It can then be used year on year as the trainee progresses through the speciality programme, with the end result being a portfolio of activities and learning logs reflective of the trainee’s personal journey through management and leadership.

Leadership programme for doctors  

The new The Language of Leadership: finding your own voice programme was launched for doctors in training and new consultants (CT1/ST1 to CCT+2) across Wessex and Thames Valley, beginning in January 2019. The programme is being run in conjunction with Thames Valley and Wessex Leadership Academy.
