Joint working between Local Integration Leads, Development Officers & Workforce Leads

Workforce Matters has been working closely with Scottish Care Local Integration Leads and Development Officers to identify, and develop, workforce solutions appropriate to different localities across Scotland.

This approach will shape the way we communicate and share local workforce activities and training opportunities.

If you are a provider, and would like to know who your Local Integration Lead is, please go to Local Partnership Information for more details.

Leadership for Integration: You as a Collaborative Leader

Supporting collaborative leadership in health and social care integration: an invitation from NES, RCGP Scotland and SSSC

Applications are now open for Cohort 2 of You as a Collaborative Leader, which begins in September 2016.

You as a Collaborative Leader is part of the Leadership for Integration programme, which supports leadership development for health and social care integration.  It is offered in joint partnership by NHS Education for Scotland (NES), the Royal College of General Practitioners Scotland (RCGP Scotland) and the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC), and is fully funded – no fees are payable by participants or their organisations.

The programme is aimed at you if you are a primary care or social care professional such as a GP, middle/senior primary care professional, or middle/senior manager in a statutory, third or independent social care organisation.  You will already be working in a lead role within  a locality or health and social care partnership to shape, develop and deliver integrated care.

You as a Collaborative Leader supports you to recognise your own leadership strengths and sources of resilience so you can lead more collaboratively and effectively in delivering integrated care. It is completed over a period of approximately four months and involves:

  • three 1:1 coaching sessions (one at the start, middle and end of the programme)
  • a 360-degree assessment and feedback exercise on your leadership capability
  • two full-day workshops on October 6th and November 10th in Edinburgh, focusing on leadership capabilities for health and social care integration
  • a tailored personal development plan to help you sustain your learning in practice

The application period for You as a Collaborative Leader is open for 7 weeks, from 13 June until 29 July.

There is a high demand for places on this programme, so all successful applicants cannot be guaranteed a place on this cohort.  However, a further two cohorts will be running over the next year, so those who do not get a place on cohort two may be considered for a future cohort.

More detailed information on You as a Collaborative Leader is available on the Knowledge Network webpages.
