    Generation Q: leadership programme from Health Foundation

    GenerationQ is the Health Foundation’s part time, fully-funded leadership programme for senior leaders from health care practice, policy and the charity sector.

    The fellowship is an opportunity for senior leaders working in and with the health service (including charity organisations and policymakers) to gain a postgraduate certificate in Leadership (Quality Improvement) from Ashridge Executive Education (with the option of completing an MSc).

    GenerationQ is designed to equip Fellows with the skills and techniques to drive forward and influence improvements across services and organisations.

    The programme aims to create a network of skilled and effective leaders who are able to have an impact on improving quality of care beyond their immediate sphere of influence

    Fellows are sponsored by an appropriate senior member of their organisation who will work with them throughout the fellowship.

    Deadline for applications is 12 noon, 23 January 2016.

    The GenerationQ programme provides:

    • an intensive, high impact learning experience, including residential leadership forums, the support of individual executive coaching, action learning in facilitated peer groups, the opportunity to engage with systems beyond health and extensive feedback
    • the opportunity to put into practice a significant improvement project in the Fellow’s place of work
    • the opportunity to work closely with, and learn from, a multidisciplinary group of peers from diverse backgrounds in health care
    • academic rigour and recognition.

    For those completing a postgraduate certificate or diploma, we anticipate an average of 10–25 hours of personal study per month over the 18 months of the programme. For an MSc, the time period is extended to two years.

    You can find full details including how to apply on  the Health Foundation website.
