What is it?

This is a Continued Professional Development offer for experienced coaches who meet the eligibility criteria and wish to be part of the CLCAS offer for NHS England & Improvement

Our interactive training for experienced Coaches, who are on local Academy / regional coaching registers, is being offered in the form of Continuing Professional Development and quarterly Supervision. The Career Coaching CPD training takes place over 2 ‘live’ online half-day sessions, plus one 60 minute recorded session, available to watch in the participants’ own time.

Coaches will then be matched with participants from specifically ‘clinical’ cohorts of a variety of Leadership Academy programmes such as of Nye Bevan, Aspiring Medical Director Programme or the Aspiring Director of Nursing Talent Scheme.

What is CLCAS?

The Clinical Leadership Coaching and Advisory Service (CLCAS) was launched by NHS England and NHS Improvement in late 2019 and began in February 2020 with the aim of:

– Coaching aspiring clinical leaders to better understand their career path; take a planned approach to their careers that helps them secure leadership roles and utilise their skills, abilities and values
– Equipping aspiring clinical leaders with tools and resources that give them the best opportunity of securing an executive role and aid them in successfully navigating the appointment process to board
– And ultimately increasing the number of clinicians in senior executive roles

This multiagency and multilevel plan aims to address the barriers and leverage the enablers that clinicians encounter in stepping into senior executive roles.
