Our #150Leaders

#150Leaders is our affectionate name for those students who are accepted on to our programme.

Initially, the programme was designed as a two-year programme for 150 students, hence 150Leaders, but now more than 300 students have completed the Student Leadership Programme, and a further 55 are in our current cohort. Find out about some of the exciting projects our students have been involved in throughout their leadership journeys.

  • ThinkTheory19 – a student support network set up during the pandemic – Brian Webster, student nurse
  • A video series promoting deaf awareness – Rebecca Lennox
  • The Covid-19 Cohorts: an international blog series on the All4Maternity website dedicated to student midwives’ accounts of how the coronavirus affected their personal lives and midwifery education – Alicia Burnett
  • Video diaries of the experience of healthcare students on Covid-19 placements featured on the BBC. The project was undertaken by Joy O’Gorman and features #150Leaders Ismat Khan and Natalie Elliott. Watch the video below:

Blogs and reflections
