Do you want to rock the boat without falling out?

TAS’ National Innovation Programme is offering NZ-based support and mentoring for the world-renowned School for Change Agents.

What is the School for Change Agents programme?

The School for Change Agents is a programme administered and facilitated by the NHS Horizons team, part of the Strategy and Innovation Directorate of NHS England.

The School for Change Agents is focused on helping passionate individuals:

  • Lead change
  • Work with hierarchies and traditional power relationships inherent to health care
  • Work with resistance, reluctance and stages of change
  • Build resilience and deal with knock backs.

The School is free to all and since its inception in 2013, thousands of clinicians, managers and others in the health and social sector have participated.

Certification as a Change Agent costs £32.

What does participation in the programme involve?

  • Five modules to complete on YouTube over five weeks
  • Weekly 45 minute zoom video conference or face-to-face meetings to discuss the content of the week's presentation, reflect on your own change leadership practice, and the opportunity to network with others from New Zealand and realise you're not alone in your change endeavours
  • Support and coaching to become a certified Change Agent.

How do I sign-up?

There are a number of programme streams beginning on different days from 20 May 2019 but there are only limited spaces available for each DHB.

If you miss out on a spot, don't worry as you can still participate in the programme on your own without attending the weekly meetings.

TAS will handle all the sign-up details with the NHS School.
