As healthcare higher education leaders navigate the complexity of the political and economic landscape, the Council recognises that strong leadership of our professions will lead to better outcomes for education and research in the sector.
We are working to develop a new programme of academic leadership for our membership that will facilitate evidence-based leadership, enhance leadership sustainability in the higher education sector and enable succession planning for the future. This programme includes leadership workshops, role modelling and coaching using senior leaders from within the Council’s membership and alumni.
Alongside this we have worked with Health Education England on a project investigating the opportunities and challenges for AHP leadership. The results were presented in the report AHP Leadership in Academia: opportunities, challenges and current positioning.
