The Council of Deans of Health has produced its Student Leadership Programme Toolkit – a complete guide to setting up a leadership programme for healthcare students. We have collated our knowledge and expertise into this guide to help share our learning and best practice. With a handful of universities already running leadership programmes and others in the setup stages, we would love to see more members further embed multi-disciplinary student leadership training.
The Toolkit contains advice around various models for running a leadership programme, advice on content and structure, and how to look at finance and sustainability. It also features case studies and examples of the student and coach experience, as well as exploring Swansea University’s Student Leadership Academy.
We are grateful to the Burdett Trust for Nursing for supporting the Student Leadership Programme and enabling us to build the expertise to be able to develop this Toolkit. We are also grateful to the Student Leadership Programme’s Advisory Group, coaches, supporters, and of course the #150Leaders for making the programme a success.
