New foundation trust NED Development Programme: enhancing board dynamics to deliver strategic change

As part of Monitor’s ongoing commitment to help NHS foundation trusts operate effectively and efficiently, they have launched a Non-executive director Development Programme.

The three-day programme, developed in partnership with the NHS Institute for Innovation & Improvement, is designed to enhance the existing skills of non-executive directors (NEDs) in foundation trusts, and applicant and aspirant foundation trusts. The programme will provide NEDs with the opportunity to:

– develop a broad and comprehensive understanding of the NHS – covering finance and the NHS reform programme;

– enhance board dynamics; and

– understand the strategic challenges facing the health sector.

This programme, which starts in July, is delivered by two leading business schools: Cass Business School and Manchester Business School. The core curriculum is broadly the same across both business schools, however there will be some differences in teaching styles and methodologies. Interested delegates are advised to study both course outlines and select their provider based on their personal learning preference.
